FBI claims student a terror agent

 

A London student known online as "Irhabi 007" was a key player in three militant plots according to FBI Director Robert Mueller.

Moroccan-born Younes Tsouli, whose nickname translates as "Terrorist 007" was arrested in London in October 2005.Mueller said that the case was proof that the terrorist threat exists not only in the mountains of Pakistan, but also in the shadows of the Internet.

Tsouli pleaded guilty in July to inciting terrorism on the Internet and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. However Mueller said that the student's computer enabled investigators to link three plots which were believed to be the work of separate organisations.

These included targets in the US, Europe and South Asia. Tsouli talked to suspected militant cell in Canada known as the "Toronto 17" who are accused of planning to attack targets in Canada. Tsouli was at the centre of a web of activities facilitating communications and posting thousands of files including manuals for attacks and videotaped beheadings.
