Firefight with the soldiers killed the head of the Al Qaeda network in Somalia

From our correspondent MAXIMUM Fazul Abdullah Mohammed in Alberizzi mugshot FbiSANAA (Yemen) - During the night the wrong way and instead of entering the area of Mogadishu controlled by shebab, the Islamic militants loyal to Al Qaeda, the head of the terrorist organization 's East Africa, Fazul Abdullah, is over in a roadblock of soldiers of the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia.

He missed a second time because it has reacted, firing wildly, and perhaps the military, who have not recognized even after his death, they would let through. So the Comorian Fazul, a national network of terror, a series known for numerous aliases, where the same Osama Bin Laden had tasked to organize Al Qaeda in East Africa, was killed late Wednesday night at the checkpoint on the road Mogadishu leads to Afgooye, near what was once the university in the Somali capital.

WITH SOUTH AFRICAN PASSPORTS - The terrorist leader was a South African passport with his picture but in the name of Daniel Johnson. The document was an entry dated March 16 in Tanzania. When his car approached the place block the soldiers asked to turn off the lights to illuminate the three passengers with their flashlights.

It 'was at this point that the occupants must have realized it was wrong road and were not in an area controlled by militias shebab, but by soldiers loyal to the TFG. They opened fire. The military has responded and the car was riddled with bullets. Nevertheless one of the occupants managed to escape.

Fazul was killed along with a second terrorist who was carrying a Canadian passport in the name of the Canadian Abdurhanam. The car was found weapons, ammunition, $ 50,000 and some laptops. Thursday the two bodies have been shown to the press and immediately handed over to the Burundian contingent of Amisom (the AU Mission in Somalia) who were investigating why the two foreigners were killed in the crossfire.

Saturday morning was only discovered the true identity of the corpse. THE embassy bombings - Fazul is accused of having organized August 7, 1998 attacks on American embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam (231 dead), and of masterminding the attacks in Mombasa on November 28, 2000: two missiles thrown against the Israeli air Ark failed car bomb thrown at the target, but the Paradise Hotel, frequented by tourists of the Jewish state, mowing the lives of two Israelis and 12 Kenyans.

Despite the size of 5 million dollars placed on his head by the U.S. government has continued undisturbed Fazul his life in Somalia, a bit 'in Mogadishu and a bit' in the Ras Chiamboni, on the border with Kenya, where, according to the Kenyan intelligence, had organized a couple of training camps for terrorists.

According to the FBI in recent years has used many aliases (Abdallah Fazul, Abdalla Fazul, Abdallah Mohammed Fazul, Fazul Abdilahi Mohammed, Fazul Adballah, Fazul Abdalla, Fazul Mohammed, Haroon, Harun, Haroon Fazul, Harun Fazul, Fadil Abdallah Muhamad, Fadhil Haroun, Abu Seif Al Sudani, Abu Aisha, Abu Luqman, Fadel Abdallah Mohammed Ali, Fouad Mohammed, and now it turns out by Daniel Johnson) in Mogadishu by his faithful but called himself simply Sadak Al Hadj.

Of the six photographs that appear on the FBI website only - according to someone who knew him, interviewed a few years ago in Mogadishu - recall with some precision the face of fundamentalism. THE LEGACY 'OF TERROR - The Somali capital was praying in the mosque in the district of Al Idayha Wahari' Adde a few hundred meters from the old "imperial road" Mogadishu, Addis Ababa, an area where it has always been dangerous to venture.

A fundamentalist area where women used to cover 20 years ago with a sort of burka that reveals only the eyes and where even then it was not difficult to see faces Pakistani or Afghan people dressed in traditional shalwar camisa, which is used in Peshawar or Kabul. Now the helm of the command of Al Qaeda is likely to pass into the hands of Hassan Turki, who was also a friend of Bin Laden and Islamist of the first hour.

Compared to Fazul, who knew 6 languages Arabic, English, French, Swahili, Comoros and Somalia, Turki has less opportunity to be an international leader of terror. But he has a formidable military school, being a former Somali army colonel of the former dictator Siad Barre, ousted in 1991.

Hassan Turki in 1993 he developed the technique in which U.S. helicopters were shot down Black Hawk in Mogadishu in October of that year: an anti-tank grenade (RPG), usually very inaccurate, as amended so as to not explode impact with the cockpit, but the impact on the vortex air rotors.

The chips will damage the blades and the aircraft crashes. It 'clear that in this way the range of the rocket increases. A technique later used against helicopters allies in Iraq and Afghanistan.
