Azeris Linked to Al Qaeda

WASHINGTON–The official indictment published by the US Justice Department against Zakaria Moussawi–charged with being part of the ring who conducted the September 11 attacks carries details on the "al-Qaeda" terrorist organization. Page three of the indictment states–that "al-Qaeda"functioned on its own and through other terrorist organizations under its umbrella and "a number of jihad groups operating in other countries including [.] Azerbaijan [.]".

On the other hand–the Turkish Foreign Ministry Spokesman Huseyin Dirioz had stated in November–that there were 39 Turkish citizens in prisons in New York and New Jersey as part of the security operations carried out in the United States after the September 11 terrorist attacks. He indicated that the detained Turkish citizens currently stay at Passaic County Prison and Hudson County Prison. These Turks are regularly visited by Turkish citizens and Embassy representatives.
