The FBI describes him as al-Qaeda’s global operations chief, a post once held by the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Shukrijumah was born in Saudi Arabia and lived for several years in the US.

He was named in a US federal indictment as a conspirator in the case against three men accused of plotting suicide bomb attacks on New York’s subway system in 2009.

He is also suspected of having played a role in plotting al-Qaeda attacks in Panama, Norway and the UK.

Wiki History:  

Born in Saudi Arabia, Adnan Gulshair el Shukrijumah (Arabic: عدنان شكري جمعة‎, ʿAdnān Shukrī Jumaʿah) (4 August 1975 – 6 December 2014) was a member of al-Qaeda who grew up in the United States.[1][2]

In March 2003, a provisional arrest warrant was issued calling him a “material witness”, and he was subsequently listed by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on the Seeking Information – War on Terrorism list,[3] and since then United States Department of State, through the Rewards for Justice Program, has offered a bounty of up to US$5 million for information about his location.[2][4]

Last known to have lived with his family in Miramar, Florida,[5] Shukrijumah is known to have a Guyanese passport but might also use a Saudi,Canadian, or Trinidadian passport.[1][2] Saudi Arabia has repeatedly denied that el Shukrijumah is a Saudi citizen.[6] Now he is considered to be a high-ranking member of Al-Qaeda.[7]

His mother insists that her son has been wrongly accused.[8][9][10] He also goes by the names Abu Arif, and Jafar al-Tayyar, the latter translating to “Jafar the Pilot”.[10]

Media reports surfaced in 6 December 2014 indicating that he was killed in a manhunt operation by Pakistan on in South Waziristan.[11]
