Man with Mich. ties on FBI Most Wanted Terrorist list, despite reports of death

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The FBI is keeping a man with ties to Michigan on its Most Wanted Terrorist list for now.

The FBI will take 47-year-old Fawzi Ayoub off this list when the agency can confirm reports that he died with commanding pro-Syrian government forces in the country's civil war.

Lebanese security officials say Ayoub died in may while backing President Bashar Assad's forces against rebels seeking his ouster.

The FBI put Ayoub on its Most Wanted Terrorists list in 2011 after a 2009 indictment in Detroit for passport fraud.
