Malcolm Shabazz (pictured), the grandson of the late civil rights leader Malcolm X, was arrested by the FBI Monday while en route to Iran to attend a Hollywoodism conference, Press TV reports. The FBI is refusing to provide any details on the arrest and Shabazz’s whereabouts are unknown, Press TV added.

Shabazz, who was born in Paris to Malcolm’s X’s daughter Qubilah, was charged at the age of twelve in the death of his grandmother and X’s widow, Betty Shabazz, back in 1997. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and arson in connection to her death. He served four years in a juvenile detention center and was released in 2001. Psychiatrists reportedly diagnosed him at the time of the murder with being psychotic and schizophrenic.
