In Cairo, the American Embassy announced that Washington had allocated up to 5 million dollars for information that leads to the arrest or conviction of a person called “Faker Boussoura”.
The US embassy stated in a post on Thursday evening that Bousoura left in 1988, his hometown of Tunisia, to reside in France, then left France in 1991 and immigrated to Montreal, Canada, and travelled back and forth from Canada to Tunisia repeatedly during the nineties of the last century.
The US embassy pointed out that Bousoura, whose crimes were not announced in its publication, obtained Canadian citizenship in 1999. While he was in Canada, he joined the Sunna Mosque in Montreal.
The embassy stated that Bousoura left Canada in 1999 and possibly made several trips to Afghanistan between 1999/2000. His current location is unknown, and after receiving training from Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, he returned to Canada.
“If you have any information regarding this person, please contact the local FBI if you are in the United States, or the nearest US embassy or consulate if you are abroad,” the embassy said in its statement.
