Ex-Guantanamo Detainee Gave Intel on Cargo Plane Bomb Plot

The British press (The Daily Telegraph, Sky News) is reporting that Yemeni officials have revealed that a former-detainee at the U.S. detention facility in Guartanamo Bay is the person who tipped off Saudi authorities about the parcel bomb plot discovered on Friday. According to the reports, it appears that Jabir al-Fayfi, a member of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, fled Yemen for his native Saudi Arabia where he surrendered to authorities on October 16 and then told them about the cargo plane terror plot.
