Amor Ftouhi

FLINT, Michigan | Montreal, Amor Ftouhi, suspected of having committed the terrorist attack last June 21 at the global airport Bishop Flint, Michigan, will be back in court Wednesday. He was accused of having committed a violent act at an airport.

Officials said Ftouhi targeted a city with an global airport, but declined to say why Flint was chosen. The Montreal resident, who was born in Tunisia and maintains residency in both countries.

LaVar Ball could reportedly appear on WWE's 'Monday Night Raw'
LaVar Ball , the over-confident stage dad of Lonzo Ball , might make an appearance on WWE's signature program, Monday Night Raw . Johnson, however, kept praising the leadership qualities of Ball , whom the Lakers selected No. 2 overall out of UCLA .

Ftouhi's attorney told the judge her client understood, given the seriousness of the charge, that he's not a U-S citizen and he has no ties to MI, that it was unlikely he would get bond.

She said she discussed the detention hearing with Ftouhi that morning and they both agreed that getting out on bond would not be likely given the nature of the offense and the fact that Ftouhi, who lives in Canada, has no ties to MI. She told a federal judge Wednesday that the 49-year-old defendant from Montreal would be held by US immigration authorities even if granted bond in the criminal case.

The prosecutor did not disagree and did not add any comment.
