9/11 film actor refused visa for US premiere

`The Iraqi actor who plays the lead hijacker in the new 9/11 film United 93 has been refused a visa to the United States to attend the premiere, it was reported today.

Lewis Alsamari was told this week by the US embassy in London that he is unlikely to be allowed to enter the US for the first public screening next Tuesday in New York, where it is due to open the Tribeca Film Festival, a newspaper said.’
