Omar Abdel-Rahman, the spiritual leader of the radical Jamaa Islamiya group, has died in prison in the United States, his son Ammar said on Saturday.
Ammar said his family had received a phone call from a U.S. representative saying his father had died.
Abdul Rahman was convicted in 1995 for his role in the attack, in which six people were killed and hundreds injured when a truck bomb was detonated in the building's garage.
He was also convicted of plotting to bomb other New York targets including the United Nations and a plan to assassinate Mubarak and is believed to be serving his term in a North Carolina jail.
