2 Yemenis accused of funneling millions to al-Qaeda

Federal authorities unsealed terror-related charges Tuesday against two Yemeni men, including one who is alleged to have delivered $20 million to al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden prior to the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The suspects were identified as Mohammed Al Hasan Al-Moayad, 54, and his assistant Mohammed Mohsen Yahya Zayed, 29. The two are accused of providing material support for al-Qaeda, Hamas and other Islamic extremist groups. They allegedly acted as major financiers and recruiters for terror organizations and secretly raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in New York and at other locations across the USA. Both have been in the custody of German authorities since Jan. 10. The U.S. government will seek their extradition. According to court documents, FBI informants said that Al-Moayad claimed to have met with bin Laden at least two times during the past several years. At each meeting, Al-Moayad allegedly told informants, he delivered ”money, arms and recruits” to the terror leader, and he claimed that he had delivered $20 million just prior to the Sept. 11 attacks.
