(03/07/06 – CHAPEL HILL) – Still no word whether the UNC graduate who’s accused of running down nine UNC students with an SUV will be charged with terrorism.
Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, 22, is charged with driving a rented Jeep Cherokee on Friday through The Pit, the popular outdoor gathering spot on the campus in Chapel Hill. He says he did it to avenge the treatment of Muslims, and he didn’t deny driving through the campus….
Taheri-azar told the dispatcher that he had written the reasons for the attack in a one-page letter that could be found in his apartment, which police later swarmed. The dispatcher pressed Taheri-azar to explain the motive behind the attack.
“It’s really to, ah, punish the government of the United States for their actions around the world,” he said….
We also learned that while he was terrorizing the UNC-CH campus, Taheri-azar’s own mother was fighting the war on terror in Afghanistan. She works for the federal government as a translator….
A law enforcement source tells Eyewitness News anchor Steve Daniels that Taheri-azar was contemplating different kinds of attacks, including shooting rampage.
