What resourcesare those? We get very little oil from them?
The first international warrant for his arrest was issued in April 1998 following a request not by the Americans or the Europeans, but by Colonel Gaddafi of Libya.
On March 16, 1998, five months before the al Qaeda bombings of the US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, the Libyan Ministry of Justice named Bin Laden as the main suspect in a double murder that had taken place in the Libyan town of Sirte four years earlier.
In March 1994 a German man named Sinvan Becker and his wife Vera travelled to Libya. They were apparently on holiday However, Herr Becker's job suggests that it was more than a sightseeing trip. Herr Becker was a spy. He is said to have been the top Arab expert in Germany's domestic intelligence agency - the German equivalent of MI5.
The Gaddafi government believed Bin Laden was involved and passed its evidence to Interpol who clearly agreed.
And an interesting aside: As Germany's most experienced Arab expert, Herr Becker's job was to identify Islamist extremist threats. The 9/11 attacks were, in part, planned in Hamburg. Had he not been murdered, would he have been alerted to the plot?
