Azzam Publications

A publishing house based in London, Azzam Publications has been accused by the authorities of being "part of a conspiracy to provide material support and communications links to people engaged in terrorism" by authorities.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

History

After the death of Abdullah Azzam, the publishers formed a group with the intent of publishing and spreading his militant ideology and related paramilitary manuals through print and Internet media

The publishing house operated from a London post office box (Azzam Publications — BMC UHUD, LONDON, WC1N 3XX) and an Internet site, www.azzam.com, that were shut down shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks and are no longer active, though mirror sites persisted for some time afterwards.

Babar Ahmad, the alleged administrator of Azzam Publications, was extradited from the United Kingdom to the United States on October 5, 2012.
