Moroccan Mohamed Guerbouzi Still London Bombing Suspect

British and European authorities have widened their search for the asylum seeker Mohammed Guerbouzi, granted British nationality in 1994. He has been heavily implicated in the Madrid bombings last year and now the London atrocities.

Guerbouzi was already wanted by French and Moroccan authorities before the Madrid attacks for his alleged links to various terrorist cells abroad.

This person has gone to ground. His credentials appear impeccable, including the Moroccan authorities passing a 20-year jail sentence on him in his absence for organising the Al-Qaeda attacks in 2003 in Casablanca that killed 44.

A student of militant and extremist moslem clerics in the UK who have recently been released in Britain, Guerbouzi is a real worry. As he carries a British passport and has no criminal record, Guerbouzi is well placed to mastermind attacks throughout the UK and Europe.

He is joined on the Wanted List with other suspects:
Mustafa Setmarian Nasar
, the alleged mastermind of last year's Madrid railway bombings, - also goes by the name Abu Musab al-Suri. Nasar, a Syrian fugitive, was indicted in Spain in connection with the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in the US.
