First woman added to FBI wanted terrorist list

Posted: Updated:

For the first time ever, a woman has been placed on the FBI's most wanted terrorist list.

65-year-old Joanne Chesimard was convicted of killing a New Jersey state trooper 40 years ago.

She escaped from a U.S. prison a few years later and has been living in Cuba.

She now goes by the name Assata Shakur.

In the 70's, she was a member of the Black Panther Party and later the Black Liberation Army.

A total of two-million-dollars in reward money is offered for information leading to her capture and return.

Chesimard is the 46th terrorist added to the list since its inception in 2001, and the second domestic terrorist put on the list.
