Pakistan Arrests 2 Al Qaeda


Pakistani security forces have arrested two important al Qaeda operatives, including an Egyptian and a Saudi national, officials said Wednesday.

The pair, Egyptian Abdul Sattar Sharif ul Misri and Saudi national Abdul Hakeem, were arrested in the southwestern city of Quetta Monday, intelligence officials said.

“These are important people,” Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, information minister in Pakistan’s outgoing cabinet who is expected to be renamed to the post, told Reuters, adding that ul Misri had a price on his head.

He did not say who had offered the reward for ul Misri’s capture, who is not among the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation’s most wanted terrorists. Ul Misri means “from Egypt” in Arabic.

An intelligence official in Quetta said the two were captured in a rented mud house in a poor neighborhood of Quetta, where many Afghan refugees also live.
