In Hamburg, Germany, it’s 2:48 pm. on Tuesday; that’s 8:48 a.m. in New York, exactly two weeks after terrorists hijacked four jetliners and crashed the first of them into the World TradeCenter.
It may seem like a odd place to look for terrorists, but that’s exactly what investigators are doing. The hijackers, who piloted the planes into crashes , may have met their end in New York and Washington, but some of them started out in Hamburg. Today, reports 48 Hours, Correspondent Erin Moriarty , the investigation centers not only on the terrorists who died but on the ones who might have gotten away.
Next to Osama bin Laden, 26- year-old Said Bahaji and 29-year-old Ramzi Bin Al Shibh may be the most wanted men in the world. Last seen in Hamburg, these fugitives are the first to be charged with more than 5,000 counts of murder.
