RIYADH — Azzam Abdullah Zureik Al-Muwallad Al-Subhi, who was Tuesday included by the US State Department in its list of global terrorists, is among the 85 wanted men in Saudi Arabia, sources told Okaz/Saudi Gazette.
Al-Subhi figures in the Kingdom’s list of wanted men for terror activities due to his links with two dangerous elements in Al-Qaeda — Muhammad Ibrahim Makkawi (Egytian also known as Saif Al-Adl) and slain terrorist Abdulaziz Al-Muqrin, sources said.
The United States added Al-Subhi, alleged to be a top trainer of foreign Al-Qaeda fighters in camps in Afghanistan, to its list of global terrorists.Al-Subhi is better known as Mansur Al-Harbi.
“According to the Saudi Ministry of Interior, Mansur Al-Harbi is accused of working at a training camp in Afghanistan and is tied to numerous senior Al-Qaeda leaders,” the US State Department said in a statement.
Harbi is believed to have traveled to Afghanistan about a decade ago and “is responsible for training militants and for the coordination of foreign fighters who travel to Afghanistan to fight against coalition forces.” — With input from agencies
