"The liquid bomb plot 'terror banker' still walking free in London as Yard chief accuses U.S. of rushing investigation" By DAILY MAIL REPORTER Last updated at 2:26 PM on 08th September 2009

SNIPPET: "And it also emerged today that a suspected key figure in the plot is still at large in Britain despite being pinpointed as an Al Qaeda financier with links both to the airline plan and the 21/7 bombers."

SNIPPET: "Intelligence sources in the UK have indicated it was surveillance of Mohammed Al Ghabra, 29, who first led them to the airline plotters.

He is suspected of being a key Al Qaeda financier who also had links to the 21/7 would-be bombers and yet the Syrian-born 29-year-old is still free to roam Britain's streets."

SNIPPET: "Al Grabra, who has British citizenship, has been named by the U.S. as a terror recruiter and fundraiser who has sent men to Pakistan for terror training.

He is also accused of keeping contact with senior Al Qaeda figures in Pakistan.

The U.S. Treasury froze his bank accounts in 2006 and the UN Security Council named him on a list of terror suspects linked to Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

The UK Treasury has also listed him as a terrorist financier and imposed financial sanctions on him." Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1211936/Airline-terror-probe-undermined-U-S-pressure-seize-British-ringleader.html
