Saif al-Adel 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.
He is an Egyptian citizen, with black hair and dark eyes. He is also believed to be affiliated with the Egyptian Islamic Jihad. He is also known as Ibrahim Al-Madani and Muhamad Ibrahim Makkawi.
Hundreds of people were killed in the embassy attacks and thousands wounded, most Kenyan and Tanzanian citizens. Twelve Americans died. For these and other acts, al-Adel is charged with murder, conspiracy to destroy United States property and other crimes.
The Rewards for Justice program is offering a reward of up to five million dollars for information leading to al-Adel’s arrest or prosecution.
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.
