(KSL News) A man who travels the world spreading a message of peace says he was once a PLO terrorist.

Kamal Saleen, who says he changed his name to protect his identity, converted to Christianity.

Today he met with a group of Utah pastors. He told our Carole Mikita that back in 1985 three kind, generous Americans opened his eyes.

Kamal Saleem, former PLO terrorist: "I thought to myself, if these people only knew who I am and what I do, what would they do? But that was very, very strong to me because the example they set up for me and what they did in front of me, it changed my life."

You can see more of his story tomorrow night on Eyewitness News at 10.
