Jihadi John Execution : Adel Abdel Bari , Father British Jihadis Jailed in US over Africa Embassy Bombings

An Egyptian man was sentenced to 25 years in an American prison on Friday for conspiring to kill Americans in the 1998 embassy bombings in Africa, which left 224 people dead.

Adel Abdel Bary - who was extradited to the United States from Britain in 2012 - pleaded guilty last September on three counts of working for al-Qaeda and Egyptian Islamic Jihad.

Bary's son, former London rapper Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, is believed to have joined extremists fighting in Syria and was for a time one of the men suspected of posing as "Jihadi John", the masked killed who has appeared in videos showing the decapitations of aid workers and journalists.

In 1997 and 1998, Bary headed the London cell of Egyptian Islamic Jihad - then led by Ayman al-Zawahiri, who is now head of al-Qaeda - and the two groups essentially merged.

Bary passed to journalists al-Qaeda's claim of responsibility for the bombings of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which left more than 5,000 others wounded.
