Wanted poster for Ramzi Yousef, issued by the U.S. Department of State, circa 1993. The poster is printed in English and includes a photograph of Yousef in the lower right corner, with physical descriptive information to its left. "$2,000,000 | Reward" is printed in bold text at the top of the poster. Three paragraphs of text printed on the poster outline the events of the February 26, 1993, provide known information about Yousef, and request anyone with additional information about Yousef or his whereabouts to contact authorities.
The U.S. government launched a worldwide manhunt for Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, offering $2 million for information leading to his capture.
The U.S. Department of State created posters bearing Ramzi Yousef’s photograph and offering a reward for information leading to his arrest. They distributed the posters worldwide. In 1995, information obtained in the search of Yousef’s apartment in Manila, Philippines, led to Pakistani and American law enforcement officers apprehending Yousef in Islamabad, Pakistan. He was extradited to the United States to stand trial.
