Zarqawi Associate Charged with Lying to FBI
Friday, June 25, 2004
By Catherine Herridge and Anna Stolley
A Lebanese national with ties to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (search), the most wanted terrorist in Iraq, was picked up in Minnesota and charged Friday in a New York court with lying to the FBI about his ties to terrorists, Fox News has learned.
According to a federal complaint obtained by Fox, Mohamad Kamal Elzahabi (search), attended jihad training camps in Afghanistan in 1988 and 89, where he first met Zarqawi who is believed to be directing the current attacks against U.S. and coalition troops in Iraq.
Officials say that more serious charges, such as material support to terrorism, may follow.
The court papers allege that Elzahabi admitted to personally knowing two of Al Qaeda's (search) most prominent leaders, Abu Zubaida and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (search), described as the mastermind behind the Sept. 11 attacks.
Investigators with the FBI's joint terrorism task force say Elzahabi ran a shipping business from New York City and lied about knowing whether his company sent portable field radios and walkie talkies to fighters in Afghanistan.
Elzahabi, 41, has been in federal custody as a material witness since May. The charges he faced Friday are part of an international terrorism investigation.

He told authorities that he traveled to Afghanistan around 1988, after attending a religious conference in the Midwest, and attended a Jihad military camp and fought in Afghanistan in 1988 and 1989, the complaint said.
