[07/October/2008]



SANA'A, Oct. 07 (Saba) - Investigations with the six-member terrorist cell of "Islamic Jihad" arrested late in September have disclosed an alleged link to Israeli intelligence, a security source said on Tuesday.

The investigations and the computer seized with the cell have revealed of correspondence between the cell's deputy leader named Bassam Abdullah Fadhel al-Haidari and an intelligence body in Israel, which has been included a support request to implement terrorist acts inside Yemen, according to the source.

Investigations are still underway, the source said, adding that when completion, the case's file would be sent to justice.

During his meeting with officials and dignitaries in Hadramout governorate, President Ali Abdullah Saleh unearthed last Monday arresting a terrorist cell has links with Israeli intelligence, despite raising a banner for Islam.

The cell included six members led by Emad Ali Saeed al-Rwoni, known as "Abu al-Gaith al-Miqdad al-Yamani". It has sent several threatening letters of targeting Arab and foreign embassies in Yemen such as embassies of Britain Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.

The cell has been arrested after a terrorist attack on the U.S. embassy on Wednesday September 17, when a twin car bomb has rocked the US embassy in Sana'a killing 16 people including seven of troops guarding the embassy and four civilians and six attackers. The civilians included two Yemenis, an Indian women and a US citizen from a Yemeni origin.
