Osama Bin Laden- Balkan Wars


During the Balkan Wars, Osama Bin Laden was helping to fund and aid, radical groups that were fighting during the different conflicts of the region. He also supplied fighters to groups such as El Moujahed and other Bosnian, Islamic forces. Many important leaders of Al Qaeda, including Bin Laden, are rumored to have visited the region. Bin Laden, and a tunisian assistant also received Bosnian Passports, but weather or not Bin Laden collected it himself is unsure. The Bosnian government said that it hadn't a way of knowing that they were giving him a passport at the time. By 1998 Osama Bin Laden was operating his terrorist network out of Albania, and the later from Kosovo. During the 90's he also managed to Bomb the American embassies in Kenya and Tanzinia. This made him an important figure in the emerging global problem of Jihadist terrorism.
