Father of British 'Jihadi John' 'was Bin Laden's closest lieutenants' - and was granted political asylum in the UK
Adel Abdel Bari, 54, is now locked up in New York awaiting trial for the bombing of the embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 after being extradited from Britain.
Bari is the father of Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, 23, one of the suspects for the execution of American journalist James Foley. Bari - who is in the high security Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan - was held in custody in the UK for 14 years before being extradited in October 2012.
