Italian Police Arrest Terrorism Suspect

Police arrested a Tunisian suspected of working for an al-Qaida-linked Iraqi extremist group as he tried to board a train Monday in Milan, headed to an Italian town where he worked as a librarian in a mosque. The suspect, identified as Nourredine Drissi, had been wanted in Italy on international terrorism charges for alleged links to Ansar al-Islam, said police from the special operations squad of the paramilitary Carabinieri. U.S. officials believe Ansar al-Islam is linked to Osama bin Laden’s terrorist network.

He headed to Milan’s central station to catch a train to Cremona, where a month earlier another Tunisian, an imam at a mosque in the northern Italian town, was arrested. Full Story
