Japan detains five foreigners in al-Qaeda probe

Japanese police on Wednesday arrested five foreigners after raiding 10 locations they suspect may be connected to a member of the al-Qaeda terrorist network. The men, three from Bangladesh, one from India and one from Mali, are believed to have received telephone calls from Lionel Dumont, a French man of Algerian descent, with alleged links to al-Qaeda.
