Suspected Iraq Attack Recruiters Caught

Three North African men were arrested in Italy and Germany as part of efforts to smash a network seeking to recruit Islamic militants for suicide attacks against coalition forces in Iraq, officials said Friday. Two others — an Iraqi man and a Tunisian woman — remained at large, the Interior Ministry in Rome said. “We’re expecting further developments within the next few days and further significant results may well be achieved,” said Interior Minister Giuseppe Pisanu, speaking in Brussels. All five are charged with association with the aim of international terrorism — a charge that was introduced in Italy after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The main suspect is an Algerian believed to be the group’s ringleader and a senior operative with links to al-Qaida, Osama bin Laden’s terror network. Full Story
