“In April 1995 [Egyptian Islamic Jihad leader Ayman al-] Zawahiri tried to unite the various Egyptian jihadist groups under his leadership in Khartoum [Sudan], with the support of the Sudanese government and probably bin Laden. The effort failed, leaving the two largest groups, Zawahiri’s Islamic Jihad and al Gamaa al Islamiyya, deadly foes.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
