Fahd Mohammed Ahmed al-Quso

Fahd Mohammed Ahmed al-Quso (born November 12, 1974 in Aden, Yemen) was wanted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation in connection with the 2000 USS Cole bombing, which killed 17 American sailors on October 12, 2000 off the port coast of Aden, Yemen. Al-Quso was being held by Yemeni authorities in connection with the attack when he escaped from prison in April 2003.

In January 2000, Quso traveled to Malaysia, where he met with 9/11 hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, as well as other Al-Qaeda operatives. Quso was interrogated in Yemen following the September 11 attacks. During the interrogations, Quso was able to identify Hazmi and Mihdhar in photographs taken in Malaysia.

He was indicted on May 15, 2003 by the United States for the USS Cole bombing. By June 2003, he was one of several new terrorist suspects who were added to the FBI Seeking Information - War on Terrorism list.

Al-Quso was recaptured in March 2004 and was removed from FBI list October 10, 2004.
