A Muslim cleric banned from France and Canada was discovered in the trunk of a BMW trying to cross the border into the United States at San Diego. Said Jaziri and his driver Kenneth Robert Lawler were both arrested, the Daily Mail reported.

muslim, cleric, us, borderJaziri took a circuitous route to the U.S. border. He first flew from Africa to Europe, then on to Central America and finally Chetumal, Mexico, and then took a bus to Tijuana. In Tijuana he allegedly paid a group of smugglers $5,000 to ferry him across the border to a “safe place anywhere in the U.S.,” the paper said.

The former imam at a Montreal mosque has called for the death of Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard who drew pictures of Mohammed and said homosexuality was a disease. He was deported from Canada to Tunisia in 2007 after it was discovered he lied on his refugee application, the newspaper said.

After his deportation, the 43-year-old alleged he had been tortured during the 13-hour flight to Tunisia, a claim Canadian officials deny, the Daily Mail said.
