|The Arraignment of Mohamed Salameh by Elizabeth Williams|
Then about a week later I received a call late at night and was told to run over to the Federal Courthouse.
I packed up my art supplies and learned to find out that the FBI had determined who was responsible for the bombing and had made their first arrest Mohamed Salameh a Palestinian illegal alien who was the driver of the van. I recall he was very angry during his arraignment and I felt it was important to capture that.

This case and more will be covered in the upcoming book
