Two Al-Qaida Suspects Arrested in Pakistan - 2002-09-23


Pakistani officials say two men have been arrested in the northwestern city of Peshawar on suspicion they are members of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida terrorist organization.

Authorities say agents from the U-S Federal Bureau of Investigation joined Pakistani security officials in the arrest operation late Sunday at a home in Peshawar, which is located near the Afghan border. Authorities also seized a computer and some documents in the home. The suspects are reported to be an Afghan and a Pakistani national.

Many al-Qaida members are believed to have crossed into Pakistan from Afghanistan after the Taleban government was ousted late last year. Pakistani officials say they have arrested more than 400 people suspected to be al-Qaida members since the fall of the Taleban.

Earlier this month, authorities in Karachi arrested Ramzi Binalshibh -- a top suspect in plotting last year's September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States.
