Abu Taha Al-Sudan (also Abu Talha al-Sudani or Tariq Abdullah) was a suspected member of Al Qaeda terrorist organization, reported[by whom?] to be an explosives expert.

He is believed to have traveled to Southern Lebanon along with Saif al-Adel, Sayful Islam al-Masri, Abu Ja`far al-Masri and Abu Salim al-Masri, where he trained alongside Hezbollah.[1]

A Sudanese national married to a Somali woman, al-Sudan had lived in Somalia since 1993. He was more recently identified as a close associate of Gouled Hassan Dourad, leader of a Mogadishu-based network that worked in support of Al Qaeda[citation needed]. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence revealed that Al-Sudani had been involved with a plot to target the U.S. military base in Djibouti (see CJTF-HOA).

Al-Sudan was also believed to be the financier of the 1998 United States embassy bombings.[2]

In December 2006, al-Sudan was reported to have led a group of ICU fighters in Idale as part of the War in Somalia.[3] A month later he was the target of a U.S. Air Force AC-130 airstrike that killed 70 civilian nomadic tribesmen, but left al-Sudan unharmed.[4]

Time, citing a Pentagon official, reported in late November 2007 that al-Sudani had been killed.[5] On September 2, 2008, in a video while taunting the United States, Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan declared the death of co-conspirator Abu Talha al Sudani.[6]
