The Moroccan Younis Mohammad Ibrahim al-Hayyari (1969–2005) was #1 on Saudi Arabia's list[1] of 36 "most wanted terrorist suspects" published on 28 June 2005. He was killed five days later in a Saudi raid in western Riyadh.[2] His name in Arabic was يونس محمد إبراهيم الحياري .

The Saudi statement says that al-Hayyari traveled to KSA on hajj in 2001 and then went underground. He was accused of playing a part in several attacks in the country, in affiliation with fellow Moroccan Karim El Mejjati, who was killed at Ar Rass a few weeks earlier.
