Toby Harnden and Andrew Alderson, in the Sunday Telegraph 07/08/2005, wrote:

"Two senior al-Qaeda operatives in Saudi Arabia made money transfers and used coded text messages to communicate with suspected terrorists in Britain before last month's attacks in London, according to officials in the kingdom."

According to the Sunday Telegraph, the two men, Younis Mohammed Ibrahim al-Hayari, allegedly al-Qaeda's leader in Saudi Arabia, and Abdel Karim al-Mejati have since been shot dead. Al-Hayari was killed in Riyadh three weeks ago and al-Mejati died in April.

According to the Telegraph, 'Saudi security officials suspect both men of involvement in the attacks in London on July 7 and 21 and say that al-Qaeda is definitely operating in Britain.'

The Telegraph claims that Al-Mejati planned the train bombings in Madrid.

According to Prince Turki al-Faisal, the Saudi ambassador to London, Saudi Arabia warned Britain less than four months ago that an attack was imminent.

(Prince Turki, who reportedly met bin Laden in hospital.)

According to the Sunday telegraph, Scotland Yard is investigating who received the coded messages and money sent from Saudi Arabia to Britain.

The Sunday Telegraph claimed that Hussain Osman, the suspected failed Shepherd's Bush bomber, had called a mobile phone in Saudi Arabia shortly before his arrest.

According to Saudi security officials Osman was phoning his parents, of Ethiopian extraction, while travelling by Eurostar from London to Rome. They are believed to have been living in the Jeddah area, near the Red Sea, for several years.

The call was reportedly monitored by a British intelligence agency.
