September 9, 2001: Ahmad Shah Massoud was murdered by two suicide bombers posing as journalists. He was head of the Northern Alliance, and the chief adversary of the Taliban. The two suicide bombers had been travelling under fake identities, concealed by real Belgian passports. Who were they? Where did they come from? How and with whose help did they prepare their attack? What were the links with Osama Bin Laden?
Malika, the wife of just one year, now the widow of one of the murderers, provides many answers to these questions just by telling her astounding story. The link between the killing of Massoud and the attacks on the World Trade Center become clear: both tragedies bear the same signature, that of Osama Bin Laden.
Malika’s tale also sheds light on how and why two people with a Western education, born in Belgium, found their way to extremism and followed this murderous directive. Last but not least, this testimony reveals the extent of the extremists’ network in Europe, and how it goes about recruiting and training new martyrs.
