Ramzi Binalshibh (Arabic: رمزي بن الشيبة‎, Ramzī bin ash-Shībh; also transliterated as bin al-Shibh or bin al-Shaibah) (born May 1, 1972)[2] is a detainee at Guantanamo Bay and stands accused of being a "key facilitator for the September 11 attacks."[3]

In the mid 1990s, Binalshibh moved to Hamburg as a student where he soon became close friends with Mohamed Atta, Ziad Jarrah and Marwan al-Shehhi. Together, they became the masterminds of the September 11 attacks, forming the Hamburg cell. He was the only one out of the four who failed to obtain a US Visa and therefore acted as a intermediator for the hijackers in the United States, by wiring money and passing on information from key al-Qaeda figures. After the attacks, Binalshibh was the first to be publicly identified as the "20th hijacker", of whom there were several more likely candidates thought to have been tasked to fill out the single missing slot among the United 93 hijacking.

Binalshibh has been in custody since he was captured on September 11, 2002, in Karachi and is awaiting trial.
