Baku. Rufat Ahmadzada – APA. A one-time associate of Osama Bin Laden died in New York on Friday while awaiting trial for allegedly plotting the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, APA reports citing NBC News.
Abu Anas al-Libi, 50, was captured in Libya by U.S. commandos in Oct. 2013 and brought to New York where he was due to stand trial. He had been wanted for more than a decade and there was a $5 million reward for his arrest. Al-Libi had pleaded not guilty.
Note that, the near-simultaneous bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa on Aug. 7, 1998 introduced al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden to most Americans for the first time. The attacks killed 224 people, including 12 Americans.
