Five Detained for Interrogation

Friday, 14 September 2001 12:00 AM

Three men of Middle Eastern descent were arrested from a strip club in Daytona Beach for making threats against the United States a day before the attacks.

The three reportedly came to the club Monday night and made threatening comments, saying, "America is going to see blood." Annoyed by their comments, the club's administration had noted their driving license numbers, which helped police in tracing them. But witnesses said they did not take the threats seriously until after the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Authorities have refused to disclose the names of those detained. Two other people were taken off a cruise ship by the Coast Guard. They are also believed to be of Middle Eastern origin and have been detained for questioning, officials said.

Investigators also raided a hotel in New Jersey in search of clues, reports said. The report named it as the Thunderbolt Hotel but did not disclose its location or what clues were found there.
