September 13, 2002      Torture in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere

       The FBI arrests six US citizens with a Yemeni background, on information provided by the CIA: Sahim Alwan, Mukhtar al-Bakri, Faysal Galab, Yahya Goba, Shafel Mosed and Yaseinn Taher. Five are arrested in their hometown Lackawanna, a suburb of Buffalo, New York. The sixth, who is connected to the other five, is arrested in Bahrain and then transferred to the US. [CBS News, 11/9/2002] They are hereafter nicknamed “the Lackawanna Six.” They reportedly traveled to Afghanistan in April and May 2001 to join in Islamic jihad and receive military training at the Al Farouq camp run by al-Qaeda. They also allegedly met with Osama bin Laden. They are believed to have been encouraged to go to Afghanistan by two American veteran mujaheddin, Juma al-Dosari and Kamal Derwish, who fought in the war in Bosnia and who visited Lackawanna in early 2001. [Washington Post, 7/29/2003]
People and organizations involved: Juma al-Dosari, Yaseinn Taher, Kamal Derwish, Shafel Mosed, Faysal Galab, Yahya Goba, Sahim Alwan, Mukhtar al-Bakri
