Evidence of Terror Plot At a Saudi Aid Agency

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina
NATO authorities who raided a Saudi Arabian aid agency last fall found computer files containing photographs of terrorist targets and street maps of Washington with government buildings marked, a senior U.S. official said yesterday.

The October raid of the Sarajevo office of the Saudi High Commissioner for Aid to Bosnia also netted a computer program explaining how to use crop duster aircraft to spread pesticide, and materials used to make fake U.S. State Department identification badges and credit cards, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

A high-ranking Bosnian government official confirmed the findings.

The material included photos of targets of past terror attacks — the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, the destroyer Cole and the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, the American official said. The pictures showed the targets before and after the attacks.

The officials did not say which buildings were marked on the Washington maps.

The U.S. official said there were also signs that millions of dollars were missing from the Saudi agency that was founded by Saudi Prince Selman bin Abdul-Aziz to help children orphaned during Bosnia's 1992-95 war.

The agency, which says it has spent $600 for that cause, has denied terrorist links in the past.
