Al-Qaeda Member at Guantanamo Accused of Planning Bombs

A Saudi Arabian al-Qaeda terror group member, held at the US detainment facility at Guantanamo Bay, has been accused of taking part in planning six bomb attacks on trucks transporting oil to the ports in Yemen.

The indictment says that the prisoner, Ahmad al-Darbi, began terrorist activities in the 1990's as a weapons instructor at an al-Qaeda training camp in Afghanistan. He met with the group's leader, Osama bin-Laden, to plan the attacks. The accused purchased navigation equipment and acquired various documents for the terrorists who were sent to carry out the planned terror attacks.
