‘N-plants were considered as 9/11 targets’
LONDON: Key Al Qaeda operatives told a well-known Arab investigative reporter that they initially planned to hit US nuclear power stations, before deciding instead to go ahead with September 11 strikes on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon.
Writing in the Sunday Times newspaper, Yosri Fuda of Al Jazeera television also said he was told that the fourth target of the September 11 attacks was supposed to be Capitol Hill in Washington - and not the White House, as has been presumed. Fuda’s revelations were based on two days of interviews he conducted in Karachi in June with two senior aides of Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden - Khaled Sheikh Muhammad and Ramzi Bin Al Shaiba. —AFP
