Leader of the London bombers trained at Jemaah Islamiah camp in 2001

Remember Mohammed Siddique Khan, who worked as a teaching assistant before leading his three acquaintances in the London bombing attacks?


A new report:
A BBC report on the Bali-London links yesterday suggested that the British-born Khan, who worked as a primary school teacher's aide with the children of immigrant families, was in contact with al-Qaeda figures for five years before the London bombings.

"Mohammad Sadique Khan arrived in Malaysia in 2001 and he was the guest of Hambali," Mr Gunaratna said.

"He spent a short period of time in Malaysia and then he travelled to the Philippines. He was sent to South-East Asia to be groomed by Hambali, who was very close to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the 9/11 mastermind."

He said that once in the Philippines, Khan went to Camp Hudaibiyah - then the main JI terrorist training camp, where it was possible to study bomb making and military skills.
Must have been Iraq.

Who has recently come here after spending a short time in Malaysia and who also has links with Al Qaeda?

How does he have links with Al Qaeda?

His convictions overseas were for, inter alia, associating with (named) terrorists. Some of those terrorists have close links with Al Qaeda and indeed may have even been members.

That's the main reason his 'cabal' of supporters are so determined to criticise those convictions because they see how damaging they can be.
