Paris: Mohamed Sifaoui has a price on his head and a book on the best-seller list. Three years after he left his native Algeria, the Muslim journalist began to serendipitously infiltrate France's extremist Islamic circles last fall. Sifaoui spent four months with the followers of al Qaeda, praying with them and listening to them discuss attacks, secretly taping them. The result was a book and two television documentaries: and a new life as a marked man.
