The FBI has added the step-aunt and godmother of rapper Tupac Shakur to its list of most wanted terrorists.
Joanne Deborah Chesimard is the first woman to be added to the list, with the US authorities offering up to $2 million for information leading to her apprehension. She is also only the second domestic terrorist to be added to the list.
Chesimard was convicted of killing a New Jersey state trooper 40 years ago, but escaped from prison in 1979 with the help of accomplices.
The 65-year-old was a member of the Black Liberation Army, a revolutionary group that US authorities describe as a “radical left-wing terror group” that murdered police officers throughout the 1970s.
