From an article on prominent Saudis who had financed al Qaeda: “Last January [2001], the United Nations Security Council identified five of them and ordered members to impound their assets. They are: Sad al-Sharif, Mr. bin Laden’s brother-in-law; Bilal bin Marwan, a senior lieutenant of Al Qaeda; Amin al-Haq, an Afghan-born doctor thought to be Mr. bin Laden’s security coordinator; and Saqar al-Jadawi and Ahmad Said al-Kadr, two bin Laden aides.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
