FBI Probes Other Hijacking Targets

Ashcroft said he directed the INS to allow longer detentions of aliens, including those taken into custody during the investigation.

``The regulation previously allowed the Immigration and Naturalization Service only 24 hours in which to decide whether to charge an alien who had been taken into custody because of a violation,'' he said.

``The revision announced last night expands the 24-hour time period to 48 hours, or to an additional reasonable time, if necessary, under an emergency, or in other extraordinary circumstances,'' he said.

``We have a responsibility to use every legal means at our disposal to prevent further terrorist activity by taking people into custody who have violated the law and who may pose a threat to America,'' he said.
