He was captured in joint operations with Pakistan after a 10-hour gun battle in 2004. He was detained at Guantanamo Bay until 2009. In January 2011, he was sentenced to life in prison by a civilian court in New York city for conspiracy in the 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in East Africa. According to the indictment, he obtained and stored bomb materials, scouted targets, and escorted the suicide bombers who attacked the embassy in Tanzania. He then fled to Afghanistan, where he cooked as well as forged documents for bin Laden prior to the US invasion.
