* Khaled Al-Fawaz, alias Abu Omar, possibly the same man known also as Abu Mahdi al Saudi, was born in Kuwait on 08/25/1962. He and his family returned to Saudi Arabia in 1979 amide the turmoil of the Islamic revolution in Iran.
Khaled Al-Fawaz arrived to U.K in 1994, after he fled Saudi Arabia, and joined Saad Faqih in his anti-Saudi activity in London. He also shared office in London with Saad Faqih during 1994-97. In London Khaled Al-Fawaz ran the anti Saudi ‘Advice and Reform Committee’ (ARC). In 1995, while Osama Bin Laden was in Sudan, Khaled Al-Fawaz was said to be attempting to pave the way for bin Laden to move to Britain.
Khaled Al-Fawaz rented an office of his own in early 1997 which functioned as a press and communication office for Osama Bin Laden in London. According to American intelligence, Khaled Al-Fawaz helped to facilitate the 08/07/1998 attack on the USA Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. USA intercepted a phone connection between Khaled Al-Fawaz and Fazul Abdullah Mohammed in summer 1997, about a year before the attack.
Khaled Al-Fawaz was, therefore, arrested in a group of seven Islamists living in England as part of Operation Challenge, early in the morning of 09/23/1998. All other detainees were from Egypt and the arrests were urged by the Egyptian authorities.
