- The Curious Incident of The 9/11 Israeli Mural Van

A box cutter was found in the van. But perhaps the biggest surprise for the officers came when the five men identified themselves as Israeli citizens.

- Here's an actual police scanner recording from the incident:
- >"... It's a big truck with a mural painted of a... of an airplane diving into New York City and exploding."
- >"We got both suspects under Kay, we have the suspects who drive...drove in the van, THE VAN EXPLODED -- we have both of them under Kay let's get some help over here..."
