3 African refugees charged with fake Phoenix bomb

PHOENIX (AP) - August 19, 2011

Luwiza Laku Daman, Shullu Anguwi Gorado, and Asa Shani are scheduled to appear in federal court Friday afternoon in Phoenix for a bail hearing.

All three are from Eritrea, a country on the Red Sea. They have declined to comment.

Authorities say Daman was carrying the suspicious item in her bag on Aug. 5 as she went through security at Sky Harbor intending to board a plane to Des Moines, Iowa. Police say Gorado and Shani gave it to her.
