Profile: Zouhaier ben Mohamed Nagaaoui

Zouhaier ben Mohamed Nagaaoui was a participant or observer in the following events:

Spanish judge Baltasar Garzon renews permission to wiretap the phones of Serhane Abdelmajid Fakhet, considered to be one of about three masterminds of the Madrid train bombings (see 7:37-7:42 a.m., March 11, 2004) that will occur one month later. Interestingly, in the application for renewal, Fakhet is linked to the Casablanca bombings of May 2003 (see May 16, 2003). His brother-in-law Mustapha Maymouni was arrested in Morocco and is being imprisoned there for a role in the bombings at this time (see Late May-June 19, 2003). Fakhet is also linked in the application to Zouhaier ben Mohamed Nagaaoui, a Tunisian believed to be on the Spanish island of Ibiza and preparing for a suicide attack on a ship, following instructions from al-Qaeda. Nagaaoui is also said to be linked to the Casablanca bombings. Further, he has links to a number of Islamist militant groups and had undergone weapons and explosives training. (Garcia-Abadillo et al. 7/30/2005) Around the same time, Garzon also renews the wiretapping of some other Madrid bombers such as Jamal Zougam. (Lazaro 9/28/2004) It is not known what later becomes of Nagaaoui.
