Sudan Gets Iran's Support to Keep Terrorists from U.N. Three Egyptians Wanted in June Attack on Mubarak


Gertz, Bill, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)

The terrorists are wanted by Ethiopia for their suspected role in the assassination attempt on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak last year at a summit in Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa.

They are wanted by Ethiopia for their involvement in the June 26 machine-gun attack on the limousine carrying Mr. Mubarak, who was not harmed.

According to the sources, the Iranians want Sudan to persuade the Islamic Group to declare that it has the terrorists in custody and to release a bogus videotape purporting to show the three men outside Sudan. …
