Saudi Ties to Carribbean Muslims' JFK Plot - part 1

Caribbean becomes new breeding ground for terror
by Sean O’Neill from The Times (UK)

What the arrests do highlight is America’s continuing concern that militant Islam could gain a foothold in the Caribbean and that al-Qaeda could use the region to launch attacks on the United States ... Of much more interest to American counter-terrorism agencies is Adnan G. El-Shukrijumah, 32, a Saudi-born al-Qaeda operative believed to be in hiding in the region. A $5 million (£2.5 million) reward has been offered for information leading to his capture. El-Shukrijumah lived in America for 15 years and trained as a pilot. The FBI says that he speaks perfect English and has a Guyanese passport but may try to enter the US with Saudi, Canadian or Trinidadian documents.
