U.S. had al Qaeda intelligence on Fort Hood shooter
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. intelligence agencies learned an Army psychiatrist tried to contact people linked to al Qaeda and they gave the information to federal authorities before the man allegedly went on shooting spree in Texas last week, U.S. sources said on Monday.
It is unclear what federal law enforcement authorities did with the information.
Thirteen people were killed in the Fort Hood shooting by the suspected gunman, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a Muslim born in the United States of immigrant parents.
