Key al-Qaeda suspect 'arrested'

From The BBC

Pakistan says it has arrested a key suspect in the bombings of two US embassies in East Africa in 1998.

He has been named as Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, an al-Qaeda militant who has a $25m American bounty on his head.[...]

His Uzbek wife and two unidentified South African nationals are among those arrested with him, Mr Hayat added.

It is interesting to note how often South Africa is coming up lately.

here are a couple of recent South African connections.
