commercialappeal.com - Memphis, TN: Local: "When FBI agents walked into Mahmoud Maawad's spartan apartment at 3557 Mynders # 5 on Sept. 9, they found a desk, chair, computer and a Koran.

They also found an airline pilot's uniform, a chart of Memphis International Airport, and instructional DVDs, including one called 'How an Airline Captain Should Look and Act.'

A federal magistrate Thursday ordered Maawad, a 29-year-old University of Memphis student from Egypt, jailed until his trial on charges of wire fraud and fraudulent use of a Social Security number.

'The specific facts and circumstances are scary,' Asst. U.S. Atty. Steve Parker said, arguing against Maawad's release.

Since Maawad can't get a Social Security number, 'he can't get a pilot's license, and can't go to flight school,' Parker said. 'But he wants to get behind the wheel of an aircraft.'

Parker said 'we don't know either way' if Maawad is a terrorist or connected to any terror groups.

U.S. Magistrate Judge S. Thomas Anderson ruled that Maawad be held without bond."
