Abdullah Azzam's "Mujaheddin Services Bureau" Back In Business
The Mujahedin Services Bureau has been re-opened after 18 months of inactivity, according to an Internet statement posted on several militant Islamist forums today. The statement bore the signature of a man using the name "Abdel Salam Aqida" and promised to provide new strategic studies, books and military training manuals.

The Mujahideen Services Bureau had initially been set up in the 1980s in Peshawer by Abdullah Azzam, who is believed to have been al Qaeda ideologue. For many years, it served as a station and training ground for new Arab recruits fighting the Soviet Union in Afghanistan.
