Pakistan Terror Suspect Appears in Court

An anti-terrorism court has ordered a Pakistani man held for questioning after he was arrested over the weekend with Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the No. 3 man in the al-Qaida terror network, a court official said Wednesday. Ahmed Abdul Qadus, a member of Pakistan’s hardline Jamaat-e-Islami party, was turned over to police Tuesday for four days of questioning, the official said on condition of anonymity. Qadus is to again appear before Judge Safdar Hussein Malik on Saturday. Mohammed, Qadus and a third al-Qaida suspect, Mustafa Ahmed al-Hisawi, were arrested in a predawn raid of Qadus’ house in Rawalpindi by Pakistani intelligence and CIA agents. Malik ordered Qadus turned over to police. Qadus’ family members deny they sheltered Mohammed. Police hope to gain information about other fugitives or recover more weapons. On Tuesday, police told the court that they had found a shotgun and hand grenades in Qadus’ home, the official said. Full Story
