After the killing of Rabbi Meier Kahane of the right-wing Jewish Defense League on November 5, 1990, [co-conspirators Mahmud] Abouhalima and [Mohammed] Salameh regrouped at [Egyptian Islamist/assassin El Sayyid] Nosair’s home in Cliffside Park, New Jersey. But they were taken into custody by the NYPD later as material witnesses. The house was raided early the next day [November 6, 1990]. Detectives and FBI agents seized forty-seven boxes in the raid–boxes that included prima facie evidence of an international bombing conspiracy with the World Trade Center as a target.”
