"The day after the bombing, three Saudis in their early
twenties traveled to Boston to visit their father, who was being
treated at a hospital there. Their bill at the Westin Hotel was
being paid by the fiancee of one of them — a man whose name is
similar to that of Mohamed Atta, one of the hijackers. After a
hotel clerk tipped the FBI, agents swarmed the hotel.
"An agent saw one of the women outside her room and pointed
a gun at her, according to the family's attorney, Jonathan Shapiro.
She tried to run away but he grabbed her and hit her across the
mouth, he said.
"The three were released after five hours, and the Saudi
Embassy called it a 'humiliation.'"
