Kamel Rabat Bouralha, is an Algerian-born British citizen who has been accused by the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB) of being a key aide to Chechen rebel warlord Shamil Basayev in organizing the Beslan school hostage crisis.[1]

Russian investigators claim that Bouralha travelled from London to Chechnya in 2001. Former associates of the Scotland Yard in London confirmed that Bouralha had lived in London and had been a frequent visitor at Finsbury Park mosque in 2000. He was reportedly detained in September 2004 in Chechnya as he attempted to flee to Azerbaijan to treat a bullet wound in his chest.[citation needed]
