According to a source in the US government, Muhammad Naeem Noor Khan, 25, alleged computer expert for Al Qaeda, who was arrested in Pakistan on suspicion of involvement in terrorism, told investigators that Al Qaeda used email and websites in Turkey, Nigeria, and regions occupied by Pakistani tribes to communicate with each other.

Each email address was used for one or two times of communication. If the information in question was too dangerous, the address was used for one time only.

They often used couriers to deliver CD with messages and other information. After these files were read, terrorists destroyed them.
