Shoe-Bomb Detainee Reid Had Dealings in the UK with the 20th Hijacker Who Goes on Trial in October; TERRORISM: US Officials Reveal That They Have Evidence of Telephone Calls Made by Richard Reid to Zacarias Moussaoui While They Were Both Living in London and Worshipping at the Same Brixton Mosque


Byline: HUGH DOUGHERTY

ALLEGED shoe-bomber Richard Reid made a series of phone calls to so-called 20th hijacker Zacarias Moussaoui when they both lived in Britain, it was confirmed yesterday.

The two men's phone calls were intercepted by British security agents, American law enforcement officials told the Washington Times.

Moussaoui is the only man to have been charged over the September 11 terror attack and faces six counts of conspiring to hijack planes and launch kamikaze attacks on the US.

And yesterday his mother returned to France after travelling to America to meet her son's lawyers and said that she feared he was a scapegoat for the suffering of September 11.

Aicha el-Wafi said on arrival at Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport, "Tell the American people that I share in their suffering, particularly with those who lost their loved ones.

"I don't want my son to be used as a scapegoat for the pain and suffering of the American people."

Moussaoui's conversations with Reid were intercepted late in 2000 and ended in December of that year when Moussaoui left Britain and travelled to Pakistan, the Washington Times reported.

Prosecutors claim Moussaoui sneaked into Afghanistan to train at an Al-Qaeda terror camp before travelling to America to learn how to fly.

And American investigators are interrogating captured Al-Qaeda fighters in Afghanistan to see if they recognise pictures of Reid, a 28-yearold Londoner who worshipped at the same Brixton mosque as Moussaoui.
