The fourth suspect, Mohamed Yaoob, was registered in Costa Rica on June 13, the statement said.

Reuters reported that the men were handed over to Costa Rica immigration authorities at around 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Costa Rica does have a detention policy, usually for only 24 hours. The men were registered there, but it is unclear what the next step will be, whether they try to claim asylum or be deported back to the Middle East.
