    Traveler With Pressure Cooker Arrested in Detroit
    Posted May 13, 2013 12:56 PM CDT

    (Newser) – A Saudi Arabian man was arrested upon arrival at Detroit Metropolitan Airport today after a series of suspicious incidents: First, Hussain Al Kwawahir was found to have a page missing from his passport; he told officers he didn't know how it had been removed.

    Then, officers found a pressure cooker in the man's luggage; pressure cookers were used in the homemade Boston Marathon bombs.

    The man will be arraigned on charges that he lied to a Customs agent about the pressure cooker, and was traveling with an altered passport.

    Al Kwawahir, who told agents he was visiting his nephew at the University of Toledo, initially said he brought the pressure cooker for his nephew because they're not sold in the US, the Detroit News reports.

    He later changed his story and said his nephew already owned a US-bought pressure cooker, but it was broken.

    Another Pressure Cooker Scare—Man Was Making Rice

    FBI surround home of Saudi student spotted with pressure cooker

    Posted May 13, 2013 3:39 PM CDT

    (Newser) – Not every guy carrying a pressure cooker is doing something suspicious.

    Armed FBI agents surrounded the home of a Saudi student living in Michigan last week after neighbors spotted him carrying the kitchen appliance outside, the Daily Mail reports.

    The reason? He had made a traditional Saudi Arabian rice dish and was taking it to his friend's house.

    An FBI agent told him he needed to "be more careful."

    Good thing about carrying a pressure cooker is you can always use it as a club if it fails to detonate...
