Plane 'plotter recruited in London'


news.bbc.co.uk

The alleged US plane bomber met radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen, after being recruited in London, a senior Yemeni official has said.

Last week US security official John Brennan said there were "indications" of direct contact between the two men.

Mr Awlaki was linked to an attack by a US Army major on the Fort Hood base in November, in which 13 people died.

This is a very intersting story linking a radical Yemini Cleric to the Christmas day bomb attempt, Fort Hood shootings and al-Qaeda.

This is the first story I have heard of a Clerics involvement in the Fort Hood Shooting, so it would be interesting to see how it develops

It is also useful to throw in there the use of a university in London as a central point of radicalisation

there has been a lot of posturing towards Yemen lately and now it looks like the powers that be may have "found" a link between Yemen and the rest of the terrorist activities

Can the west open up a new front in Yemen. I'm not disputing the issues there are in that country and have existed for quite some time. Maybe it's about time Saudi Arabia lived up to it's "role" within the middle east and intervened.
