The New York Times has a front-page story today about Umar Kundi, a Pakistani terrorist mastermind killed in a recent shootout. The infamous attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team last March was among the many 29-year-old allegedly planned, along with seven other jihadis. As the paper says:
Their strikes were skillful. In last year’s attack against the Sri Lankan cricket team, led by another educated young man from a working-class family, a 29-year-old nursing assistant, Aqeel Ahmed, only three top people out of about 14 attackers knew the nature of the target, according to a police official who investigated the attack. The rest believed that the bus they were ambushing held an American delegation.
Absolutely amazing. They didn’t realize it was cricket.
