Along with Ayman al-Zawahiri and Said al-Adel, Mr. Abdullah is wanted by the US for the African embassy bombings in 1998 and is on the FBI’s list of Most Wanted Terrorists. He arranged and paid for the travel of the Al Qaeda operatives who carried out the attack, according to The Washington Post, describing him as the group’s chief financial officer.
