Khair Mundos is a key leader and financier of the Philippines-based Abu Sayyaf Group. Mundos’s May 2004 arrest on the first-ever money laundering charges against terrorists grew out of an investigation initiated by the USG in coordination with Philippine officials. While in police custody, Mundos confessed to having arranged the transfer of funds from al-Qaida to Abu Sayyaf Group leader Khadaffy Janjalani to be used in bombings and other criminal acts throughout Mindanao. In February 2007, Mundos escaped from a Kidapawan Provincial Jail. Because of his leadership position in the Abu Sayyaf Group, whose terrorist attacks have resulted in the deaths of U.S. and Filipino citizens, U.S. authorities consider Mundos to be a threat to U.S. and Filipino citizens and interests.
Mundos is believed to be hiding in southern Mindanao.
