Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah is a fugitive and suspected high-ranking member of the al-Qaida terror network who is wanted in connection with the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya.

Born in Egypt in 1963, he is approximately 173 cm tall, with dark eyes and dark hair. He has a scar on the right side of his lower lip. Also known as Abu Mohamed al-Masri, Abdullah is an experienced financial officer, facilitator, and operational planner for al-Qaida.

Hundreds of people were killed in the 1998 embassy attacks and thousands wounded, mostly Kenyan and Tanzanian citizens. Twelve Americans died. For these and other acts, Abdullah is charged with conspiracy to murder and other crimes.

He, along with his co-conspirator and fellow al-Qaida member, Sayf al-Adl -- also charged by the United States for involvement in the embassy attacks -- moved to Iran after the bombings under the protection of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

For information leading to Abdullah’s arrest or conviction, the U.S. Department of State’s Rewards for Justice program is offering a reward of up to $10 million.

The U.S. guarantees that all reports will be investigated, and the identity of all informants will be kept confidential. If appropriate, the U.S. is prepared to protect informants by relocating them. If you have information on this man, submit a tip at www.rewardsforjustice.net or e-mail information to info@rewardsforjustice.net. In North America, call 1-800-877-3927.
