A terrorist of Al Qaeda worked for British intelligence

London .- A terrorist of Al Qaeda and other detainees accused of involvement in attacks on two Christian churches and a luxury hotel in Pakistan in 2002 reportedly also working for MI6, British intelligence service, according to secret documents made public by The Guardian. This is the Algerian Adil Bin Hadid al Jazairi Hamlili, described as "facilitator, e, kidnapper and murderer in the pay of Al Qaeda" was arrested in Pakistan in 2003 and then sent to the U.S.

prison at Guantanamo Bay. According to the documents there on his person, his American interrogators were convinced at the same time acting as an informant for British intelligence and Canadians. After his capture in June 2003, Hamlili, 35, was sent to the detention center at Bagram, north of Kabul, where he was again interrogated repeatedly by CIA personnel.

Hamlili was denounced by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the admitted architect of the Sept. 11 attacks on America, he told his interrogators that "Abu Adil" Hamlili nom de guerre, had orchestrated the attack on a Protestant church in the diplomatic quarter Islamabad, which killed five people, including a U.S.

diplomat and his daughter. He also blamed for another bombing that killed the three girls in a rural church Pujjab the following December and said that he had given 300,000 rupees (about $ 2,500) to carry out terrorist acts. These attacks have been attributed to Lashkar I Jhangvi before a Pakistani sectarian group linked to Al Qaeda lately.

Other reports indicate that U.S. Hamlili "possibly" was also involved in another deadly attack against the Sheraton hotel in Karachi in May 2002 that killed eleven Frenchmen and two Pakistanis. However, the paper said, the accusations against the Algerian, who was deported to Mexico last January, where detention is continued, do not seem very reliable, as with many other allegations contained in documents from Guantanamo.

According to The Guardian, much of the accusations has been that could have been obtained by torture. So we know that his accuser, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was tortured in 183 cases using the technique of simulated drowning with water (waterboarding) in a secret CIA center in Thailand during the first month in prison.

The only thing that seems clear, the paper said, is that Hamlili was a veteran of the clandestine and violent jihad spreads its tentacles from northern Pakistan and Afghanistan to the Maghreb. Left Oran (Algeria) with his father in 1986, when he was only eleven years to join the fight against Soviet forces in Afghanistan and then fell under the influence of other extremist groups and activists dedicated to recruiting for the civil war Algerian.

Under the Taliban, Hamlili worked as a translator for the Afghan Foreign Ministry and later for their intelligence. According to Clive Stafford Smith, a lawyer who represents many Guantanamo detainees, Wikileaks published documents show the "bureaucratic incompetence" of U.S. intelligence.

On Monday, the New York Times and The Guardian published information based on documents leaked to Wikileaks that indicate the weakness of many of the tests that were based Americans for sending detainees to Guantanamo and tensions between the interrogators themselves.
