REWARD PLAN ON BOMBINGS HITS A SNAG

SHARE REWARD PLAN ON BOMBINGS HITS A SNAG

A U.S. plan to offer up to $2 million for information about a missing suspect in the World Trade Center bombing has been stymied by a dispute over which agency should put up the money, it was reported Friday.

Unidentified officials told The New York Times that the dispute between the State Department and the FBI may have cost the United States a chance to catch the suspect, Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, before he vanished in the Middle East.Yousef, who authorities say is a central figure in the bombing, is believed to have fled to Iraq soon after the Feb. 26 bombing. He has been the subject of an international manhunt.

Yousef was last seen on the morning of the bombing at a gas station where suspects in the case filled the tank of the van used in the attack.
