Spanish Judge Jails Al-Qaida Suspects

A judge ordered a Spaniard and a Pakistani jailed Wednesday on suspicion they formed part of the financial network of Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaida organization. The two were among five people arrested last Friday in eastern and northern Spain. The magistrate released the other three detainees, all Spaniards, without charges. The two jailed were identified as Spaniard Enrique Cerda Ibanez and Pakistani Ahmed Rukhsar. Judge Ismael Moreno ordered the imprisonment on the recommendation of the State Attorney’s office which said the two may have been involved in the synagogue bombing on the Tunisian resort island of Djerba last April, in which 19 people were killed. State prosecutor Pedro Rubira accused Cerda and Rukhsar of sending money to a man identified as ‘Isaac of Karachi’ who is alleged to have financed the Djerba attack and is believed to be in Pakistan.
