Your article was wonderfully informative.

I was curious about any further developments in the case of Ali Salem Kahlah Al-Marri, from Qatar. In March 2002, ABC News reported that he had been detained/arrested in January 2002 in connection with the 9/11/01 attack. His attorney indicated that it was a case of misunderstanding - calling same telephone number as Muhammed Atta was just a coincidence, or something like that.

I have not found anything further. If you have written about him subsequently, please don't reply - I'll find it.
