Al Qaida terrorist hid out in Slovakia

The Sme paper reports that a suspect arrested in Britain over the weekend on suspicion of planning a terrorist attack, Rabah Kadri, spent more than a year in Bratislava on a false French passport.

Kadri, according to the British press, had direct contact with Osama bin Laden and his Al Qaida network, and allegedly planned with two other terrorists to release cyanide gas on the London metro system during rush-hour.
