From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yosri Fouda, (Arabic: يسري فودة) born in May 13 Egypt, is a journalist who initially worked for the BBC's short-lived Arabic-subsidiary covering the ongoing struggle in Bosnia with veteran reporter Martin Bell. He currently works for the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera channel. He is the co-author of 'Masterminds of Terror: The Truth Behind the Most Devastating Attack The World Has Ever Seen', 2003 Arcade Publishing.


Al Jazeera

In 1996, he joined the newly-forming Al Jazeera, and is the bureau chief for the Arabic arm of the news agency. In September 2002, Fouda interviewed Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who admitted his involvement, along with Ramzi Binalshibh, in the September 11, 2001 attacks.[1] It has been suggested that Fouda gave away the hideaway location of Binalshibh to Al-Jazeera's chairman Hamad bin Thamer al-Thani, a cousin of the Emir of Qatar, and that CIA director George Tenet received the location tip-off from the Emir, resulting in Binalshibh's capture.[2]

In the Arab World Fouda gained fame with his program called Top Secret (Arabic:سري للغاية) on Al Jazeera.

Fouda later took on a side job teaching at the Cairo University.

In 2006, Fouda, now in charge of Jazeera's London bureau, broke a story on a "martyrdom video" by "9/11 hijackers" Mohamed Atta and Ziad Jarrah.[3]


"I do not really believe there is such a thing as al-Qaida, the organization; there is al-Qaida, the mind-set" —Yosri Fouda
