DETROIT — Enthusiastic and ambitious, Karim Koubriti came to America from Morocco in search of opportunity when he was 22 years old. He was the son of educators, and he studied French law for a time, though he hadn’t graduated. He had a certain sophistication.

Still, his intelligence and savoir faire could hardly have prepared him for what was to come nearly a year after arriving in the United States.

Six days after Sept. 11, 2001, FBI agents came knocking at his door on Norman Street on Detroit’s west side.

Koubriti had returned home from work by 5 p.m Two of his roommates were sleeping. He had just taken a shower.

He heard the knocking and somebody screaming: “Nabil, Nabil Nabil.”
