No FBI Arrests in New York

An FBI spokesman said, "We investigated the situation thoroughly, and it was resolved to our satisfaction."

However, there were some activities at New York airports Thursday. At one, authorities determined that two of the passengers on board a flight to Los Angeles were on a list of those sought for questioning by the FBI.

"We have notified other agencies of people's names we would like to talk to," a Justice Department official said. "They are not suspects." The official refused to say how long the list was, but said its size was fluid.

After determining that the two sought individuals were on the plane, five Port Authority officers entered from the front of the plane, while another five entered from the rear at about 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

One of the individuals was accompanied by a woman, and both "courteously left the plane." The other refused and was escorted off the plane. All three were questioned by the FBI and released. Their baggage was also taken from the plane.

Also Thursday, "at JFK, there was one incident were a male was stopped and had a fictitious (Federal Aviation Administration) pilot's license."

The individual was stopped by police, but was not arrested by the FBI.

One incident stretched back to Tuesday, when the terror attacks began. Four people on a flight at JFK who would not get off a plane until security was called in. The four came back Thursday to change their tickets, were questioned by the FBI and released.

At LaGuardia Thursday, police received a report that five people collecting their baggage after getting off a plane had "crew member stickers" on the baggage, when they had no right to the stickers. Police found no crew stickers on the baggage and concluded that it was a false report.

On Friday, the FBI released 19 names of suspected hijackers on the four planes involved in Tuesday's terrorist attacks. The names, all of Arab origin and many possibly temporary residents of Florida, with partial information on each:
