What's in a name? For Ahmed Abdulla's family it's the difference between going on their annual holiday to the United States. Today they should be sunning themselves in Florida but Ahmed who's born and bred in Barry near Cardiff was refused a US Visa pending further investigations.
He was told his name is similar to Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah who is on the FBI's most wanted list. When he flew to Belfast for an emergency appointment with the US Embassy his passport was taken from him.
The family have travelled to the United States many times and have a timeshare apartment in Orlando. Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, they have experienced delays at immigration and had been assured this would never happen again.
The family say they hope to reschedule a holiday but due to their experiences they may never go back to the United States.
