Terror suspect ordered held in Pakistan

A Pakistani man arrested along with alleged al-Qaida No. 3 Khalid Shaikh Mohammed was remanded to prison Tuesday to allow authorities time to bring charges against him, court officials said. Ahmed Abdul Qadus was ordered held an additional two weeks by the Anti-Terrorism Court in Rawalpindi, a city adjacent to the capital. Qadus was arrested March 1 along with Mohammed and a third man, alleged al-Qaida financier Mustafa al-Hisawai. His family says Qadus is innocent and denies that the two foreign al-Qaida suspects were ever in their home. Qadus is being held on charges of sheltering a religious extremist. He is scheduled to be brought to court again on March 25, at which point his detention is likely to be extended. Mohammed and al-Hisawai have been handed over to U.S. custody and are being held at an unknown location outside of Pakistan. Full Story
