INDICTMENT
June 2001 TERM - AT ALEXANDRIA

THE GRAND JURY CHARGES THAT:
COUNT ONE
Conspiracy to Kill United States Nationals
Introduction
Saudi Hizballah
1. From some time in the 1980s until the date of the filing of this Indictment,
Hizballah, or "Party of God," was the name used by a number of related terrorist organizations
operating in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Kuwait, and Bahrain, among other places. These Hizballah
organizations were inspired, supported, and directed by elements of the Iranian government.
Saudi Hizballah, also known as Hizballah Al-Hijaz, was a terrorist organization that operated
primarily in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and that promoted, among other things, the use of
violence against nationals and property of the United States located in Saudi Arabia. Because
Saudi Hizballah was an outlaw organization in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, its members
frequently met and trained in Lebanon, Syria, or Iran.
2. A regular gathering place for members of Saudi Hizballah was the Sayyeda
Zeinab shrine in Damascus, Syria, which was an important religious site for adherents of the
Shi'ite branch of Islam. Saudi Hizballah drew its members primarily from among young men of
the Shi'ite faith who resided in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, near the Persian Gulf.
Those young men would frequently have their first contact with Saudi Hizballah during religious

Bin Ladin Associate Pleads Guilty in U.S. Court Page 1 of 5

Bin Ladin Associate Pleads Guilty in U.S. Court

A former U.S. Army sergeant pleaded guilty friday to helping to plot the U.S. embassy bombings and
participating in a terrorist conspiracy against Americans.

AN Mohamed, 48, pleaded guilty in the Federal District Court in Manhattan to a total of five charges
of conspiracy to murder, kidnap and maim U.S. citizens abroad, and conspiracy to destroy U.S.
national defense sites. His testimony directly linked, for the first time, Osama bin Ladin to the
bombings of the bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.

A trusted bin Ladin lieutenant
For most of the past decade, AN Mohamed was in a unique position to further bin Ladin's terrorist
activities. A native of Egypt, Mohamed served for three years as a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army,
where he taught special forces personnel about Islam and Muslim culture. Before that he served in
the Egyptian Army. Upon his discharge from the army in 1989, he became a naturalized U.S. citizen.

Even before his service in the U.S. Army, Mohamed had become involved in the Egyptian al-Jihad
group—the same group that was responsible for the assassination of Egyptian president Anwar Sadat
in 1981. Al-Jihad joined bin Ladin's al-Qaidah network in the early 1990's. Its leader, Ayman al-
Zawahiri, is reported to have sat on the al-Qaidah ruling council, which planned the embassy attacks
and is now believed to be in hiding with bin Ladin in Afghanistan

Mohamed said that he became acquainted with bin Ladin's organization around the time al-Jihad
joined al-Qaida. In 1991, he helped bin Laden to relocate his base of operations from Afghanistan to
Sudan.

In 1992, three years after Mohamed became a U.S. citizen, he traveled to Afghanistan to instruct al-
Qaidah members in basic explosives and intelligence training, teaching them how to create
operational cells. In 1994, Mohamed was summoned to Sudan to train bin Ladin's personal
bodyguards, and to coordinate with Sudanese intelligence agents who were responsible for bin
Ladin's security outside his compound.

Operational methods
Mohamad's testimony provided a fascinating glimpse into the methods of bin Ladin's al-Qaidah
network. The goal of the group's activities was to force the United States and other Western
governments out of the Middle East

According to Mohamed, in the early 1990's he began working closely with bin Ladin's top aides,
including Wadih el-Hage, another of the defendants facing trial in New York, to help bin Ladin to
create "a presence in Nairobi, Kenya."

"A car business was set up to create income," Mohamed said. "Wadih el-Hage created a charity
organization that would help provide al-Qaidah members with identity documents. I personally
helped el-Hage by making labels in his home in Nairobi. We used various code names to conceal our
