The report did not mention any American by name but the applicant said several American officials have publicly claimed responsibility for the attack and action should be taken against them.

"My brother did not have links with any terrorist group. He was an innocent and a poor man, the father of four children and the lone breadwinner in his family," the brother said in his application.
