5 Al Qaeda suspects under probe: police
PESHAWAR: Five suspected Al Qaeda members are being interrogated by Pakistani intelligence experts after being arrested near here, police said on Sunday.
Two Arabic-speaking men, two Afghans and one Pakistani were arrested in an overnight swoop on the Afghan Support Committee (ASC) — a non-governmental organisation in Pabbi, a small town 20km from here. A computer desk, CDs and files were seized and the suspects have been handed over to a joint civil and military interrogation team, police said. The ASC is a Kuwait-based group reportedly set up by Osama Bin Laden. Senior ASC official Hussein Halil, from Jordan, is still in custody after being arrested in Pabbi on suspicion of Al Qaeda links in the last week of May. —AFP
