Possible
  • According to Ramzi Binalshibh, Khalid al Masri approached him and Marwan al-Shehhi on a train and struck up a conversation about jihad in Chechnya. When they later contacted al Masri to express interest in going to fight there, he told them to contact "Abu Musab," an alias for Mohamedou Ould Slahi, an al-Qaeda operative, who ultimately directed them to train in Afghanistan.1
