    Terror update

    An update on some of America's other enemies in the war against terrorism:

    By Times wires and staff reports
    © St. Petersburg Times
    published September 11, 2002

    Ayman al-Zawahiri, the physician and Egyptian Islamic Jihad leader who is widely regarded as bin Laden's chief deputy.

    His whereabouts are unknown.

    * * *

    Khalid Shaik Mohammed, the shadowy Kuwaiti who apparently was a key planner of the Sept. 11 attacks.

    His whereabouts are also unknown.

    * * *

    Mohammed Atef, the former Egyptian police officer who, as al-Qaida military chief, wrote the group's training manual and apparently ordered the Sept. 11 attacks.

    He was reported killed in a U.S. airstrike in November near Kabul, but the FBI apparently is not convinced he is dead. He is still on the agency's list of the nation's "Most Wanted Terrorists."

    * * *

    Abu Zubaydah, the chief of al-Qaida operations outside of Afghanistan and the highest ranking bin Laden lieutenant taken alive since the Sept. 11 attacks.

    Since he was wounded and captured in Pakistan in March, Zubaydah has been heavily guarded in an undisclosed location. Though not considered a cooperative witness, he has been talking with American interrogators. Some of the information has reportedly proved valuable; some, false.

    Mullah Muhammad Omar, supreme leader of the Taliban, which ruled Afghanistan and gave safe haven to bin Laden.

    He and his forces were routed in January, and his whereabouts are unknown.

    * * *

    Jose Padilla, who was arrested amid great fanfare in early June as a significant terrorist with plans to detonate a radioactive "dirty" bomb.

    Padilla, 31, a Muslim convert and former Chicago gang member, is being held in a military brig in South Carolina as an enemy combatant, a legal designation allowing the government to jail him without formal criminal charges. His attorney has argued that he is being held illegally and should be released.

    * * *

    Zacarias Moussaoui, the so-called "20th terrorist."

    Moussaoui is scheduled to stand trial in federal district court in Alexandria, Va., starting Dec. 9. If convicted on charges of conspiring with bin Laden and the al-Qaida network to carry out the Sept. 11 plot, Moussaoui faces the death penalty. He has acknowledged his loyalty to bin Laden but said he played no role in the attacks.

    * * *

    Richard Reid, the British citizen accused of trying to blow up a Miami-bound jet on Dec. 22 with a bomb hidden in his shoe.

    Reid's case is proceeding in federal court in Boston, where the plane was diverted. According to court documents, Reid told his mother that he had a duty as a Muslim to "help remove oppressive American forces." Passengers and crew restrained him.

    * * *

    John Walker Lindh, the U.S. citizen who pleaded guilty July 15 to fighting alongside the Taliban in Afghanistan.

    Lindh is undergoing debriefings with government agencies as part of a plea agreement. He will be sentenced to prison -- the maximum would be 20 years -- if officials are satisfied with his cooperation and the judge approves the deal on Oct. 4. His lawyers say Lindh would like Americans to forgive him for joining the Taliban military. He never thought that he would be fighting in a war that Americans would enter, the lawyers say.
