Khalid Ibrahim Ahmed Hyacinth Alasiri is a citizen of Saudi Arabia, notable for his alleged involvement in violent jihadist fundamentalism.[1] According to the Saudi Gazette Alasiri had been imprisoned, but was released in 2007. Upon his release he recruited his younger brother, Abdullah Hassan Tali’ Asiri, and the pair left Saudi Arabia for Yemen. Under Saudi law it is a crime to leave the country without permission.

Upon their arrival in Yemen the Saudi Gazette reported the brothers connected with other jihadists.[1]

On February 3, 2009 the pair were named on a list of Saudi Arabia's most wanted terrorist suspects.[2][3][4] It listed 85 individuals, 83 of whom were Saudis, and two were from Yemen.

Ibrahim's brother Abdullah contacted deputy Minister of the Interior, Saudi Prince Muhammad bin Nayef bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud, expressing a wish to surrender.[1][5][6] Instead he wounded the Prince when he exploded a suicide bomb when they met.

The brothers' father is a retired soldier, in his seventies.[1] He denounced the brother's jihadist activities. They have three sisters and two surviving brothers.
