    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Investigators probing the London terror bombings are focusing on an elusive British Muslim suspect who is connected to a previous plot to set up a terrorist training camp in rural southern Oregon, according to U.S. counterterrorism officials. Officials told both NBC News and CNN Wednesday that Haroon Rashid Aswat, believed to be a mastermind of the London bombings, is the same British-born Muslim of Indian descent who scouted a Bly, Oregon ranch to set up a terror camp. These officials said Aswat, a Pakistani national being sought for questioning as a person of interest by British authorities,...

    Although the eight suspects in London's two subway-bombings come from different backgrounds, investigators now believe that they share an important link: The notorious Finsbury Park Mosque in northwest London. Long a hotbed of militancy, the facility had become known as London's "Jihad Central" before it was shut down last year. And according to Newsday, it was frequented by at least three of the suspected bombers who were involved in both the July 7 and July 21 attacks. Mohammad Sidique Khan, one of London's four alleged July 7 suicide bombers, visited the mosque, where firebrand imam, Abu Hamza al-Masri, preached jihad...

    BLY, Ore. — This hard-knocks hamlet seems an unlikely place to search for clues to the al-Qaida terrorist network. It sits on an arid plateau in Southern Oregon, about 50 miles east of Klamath Falls. With a population of about 250, it has a couple of cafes and small stores, an antique shop, and the razed foundation of an abandoned lumber mill. But in late 1999, federal authorities and other sources say, the area had something far more unusual: militant Muslims scouting a ranch outside of town as a possible training camp for jihad fighters. That aborted effort has now...

    A KEY al-Qaeda operative responsible for recruiting the shoe bomber Richard Reid and one of the September 11 hijackers helped to kidnap five British children from their Norwich home and take them to Libya, a court was told yesterday. Djamel Beghal, 39, is serving ten years in a French prison for plotting a suicide attack on the US Embassy in Paris and was described as so dangerous that even other al-Qaeda members thought him beyond the pale. While he was living in Leicester in the late 1990s Beghal, an Algerian, met Azzedin Journazi, from Libya, at a city mosque and...

    Militant Imams Under Scrutiny Across Europe By DON VAN NATTA Jr. and LOWELL BERGMAN ONDON, Jan. 24 - In nightly sermons broadcast on the Internet, Sheik Omar Bakri Muhammad, a 46-year-old Syrian-born cleric, has urged young Muslim men all over the world to support the Iraq insurgency on the front line of "the global jihad," investigators say. He struck a similarly defiant tone this month at a rally attended by 500 people at a central London meeting hall, where a giant screen behind him showed images of the World Trade Center falling.

    Right-wingers and Muslims clash 2.49PM, Fri Jun 4 2004 Right-wing protesters waving Union Jack flags clashed with police and Muslims during Friday prayers outside a London mosque. Around 20 men, claiming to be from a group called the United British Alliance jeered and shouted anti-Muslim slogans from behind fences set up by police outside the Finsbury Park mosque. There were scuffles after a few protesters seemed to infiltrate the street in which prayers were being held, outside the north London mosque where radical cleric Abu Hamza was based before his arrest. The clashes were quickly broken up, and prayers were...

    Abu Hamza, the militant, London-based Muslim cleric, maintained close contact with the leadership of al-Qa'eda during the years when it operated a worldwide terrorist network from Afghanistan, according to FBI files. Documents obtained by The Daily Telegraph state that Hamza, the former imam of Finsbury Park mosque, north London, dealt personally with Abu Zubeidah, Osama bin Laden's director of operations. Zubeidah, a Palestinian who is now in US custody, communicated bin Laden's instructions and messages from his hideout in Afghanistan to al-Qa'eda cells around the world. Hamza had the power to refer recruits to Zubeidah for "leadership training" in Afghan...

    An Algerian who infiltrated a London mosque for the British intelligence service has shed new light on suspected links between the 1999 activities at an Oregon ranch and the al-Qaida terror network. In a telephone interview from London yesterday, Reda Hassaine said two Egyptian-born men known to have visited the Bly, Ore., ranch and are suspected of inspecting it as a possible terror-training camp are direct subordinates of the London-based Muslim radical Abu Hamza. The two men came to Hamza's mosque in 1998 directly from terror-training camps in Afghanistan, he said.Hamza, a London cleric who lost both hands and an...

    Seattle militants investigated for possible ties to al-Qaida Additionally, federal investigators believe members of the group scouted a ranch in southern Oregon as a potential site for a terrorist training camp. About 15 of the militants visited the sagebrush-covered property near Bly, Ore., in fall 1999 to participate in target practice, and two men from Abu Hamza's mosque visited the ranch later that year, sources say. That account was supported by a relative of one of the men under investigation. The investigation comes to light as Attorney General John Ashcroft is warning that al-Qaida maintains a "hidden but active presence"...

    Militant suspicions Where's the connection? I am outraged by "Seattle militants investigated for possible ties to al-Qaida" (Local News, July 12). Your headline would imply there are dozens if not hundreds of Muslims plotting and planning to wreak havoc in Seattle. The article seemed long on allegations but woefully short on proof; healthy skepticism was non-existent. We would like to share just a few of our concerns with you and your readers: The mosque in the picture says, "Masjid Al-Taqwa" ("God-fearing Mosque"), not Dar-us Salaam. "(T)he Ultimate Jihad Challenge": What does that mean? It could be a struggle for the...
