WikiLeaks: BBC ‘could be part of an Al Qaeda propaganda network’

The BBC is accused of being part of a “possible propaganda media network” for Al Qaeda, according to the leaked US files on the Guantanamo detainees. The files, obtained by the WikiLeaks website and passed to The Daily Telegraph, disclose that a phone number of someone at the BBC was found in the phone books and phones of a number of extremists seized by US forces. Analysis by The Daily Telegraph suggests the number is one for Bush House, home of the BBC World Service.
The Daily Telegraph rang the phone number today. A single tone on the line suggested that it had been disconnected, or was no longer in use.
