classified diplomatic note to the Embassy's note of September
25 regarding the co-sponsorship by the United States and
Germany of Abu Musa'ab al-Zarqawi to be added to the United

(Complimentary opening) With reference to the Embassy's note
number 1519 dated September 25, 2003 containing the Embassy's
request to investigate the presence of offices or other
financial assets of terrorist-linked organizations in Jordan
and welcoming any information about the subject cell (note:
the al-Zarqawi group), the Ministry has the honor to inform
the Embassy of Jordanian efforts in this regard.

- The relevant Jordanian authorities discovered the true
names and nationalities of the cell resident in Germany
associated with "Ahmad Fadhel al-Khalailah," alias "Abu
Musa'ab al-Zarqawi," and discovered the activities of its
members and the locations of their military training.

- The judicial authorities in Jordan provided the judicial
authorities in Germany with the available information
regarding the cell's personnel arrested in Germany.
