Saudi Student Visited by FBI After Using Pressure Cooker to Cook Food

FBI agents were called to the Michigan home of a Saudi student who was spotted walking around with a pressure cooker — only to learn that he was using it to bring food to his friend's house.

Talal al Rouki told the Saudi daily Okaz he was visited by several FBI agents last Friday after a neighbor apparently called in to report his "bullet-colored" pressure cooker.

"They asked me about my major, when I arrived in the US and what I do in my spare time," al Rouki is quoted as saying.

He then showed the agents his cooker, which he had just used to cook kabsa, a traditional Saudi dish consisting of rice, meat, and vegetables.

Satisfied, the agents withdrew, but not before one of them told al Rouki to "be more careful moving around with such things."
