Department of Justice: Local man charged with making threat during university Zoom lecture. “Federal authorities took him into custody late Friday, Sept. 4, upon the filing of a criminal complaint. According to those charges, Al Bayati identified himself as Abu Qital al Jihadi al Mansur and joined a UH student lecture via Zoom on Sept. 2. Shortly thereafter, he allegedly interrupted and said ‘what does any of this have to do with the fact that UH is about to get bombed in a few days?'”
