U.S. lays charges against al-Qaeda loyalist behind deadly Algerian gas plant attack


Originally posted on National Post | News:

U.S. prosecutors filed charges Friday against Mokhtar Belmokhtar, the one-eyed al-Qaeda loyalist who led a band of terrorists that included two Canadians on a deadly attack at a Western-owned Algerian gas plant in January.

The U.S. Attorney’s office in New York filed eight charges against Belmokhtar, leader of the Signers in Blood Battalion, ranging from kidnapping to conspiracy over the attack that killed 37 hostages, three of them Americans.

Among the terrorists who seized the plant with AK-47s and rocket launchers were Kris Katsiroubas and Ali Medlej, friends from London, Ont., who traveled in 2011 to Morocco, Mauritania and Mali, where they allegedly joined Belmokhtar’s group.

The criminal complained filed by FBI Special Agent Jessica Ulmer did not mention the pair but it quoted from transcripts of the phone calls made to the company by an English-speaking hostage-taker, believed to be Katsiroubas.
