South Africa Reportedly al-Qaida Target

Two South African men — captured along with a senior al-Qaida terrorist — were plotting attacks on tourist sites in their home country, and vowed an unceasing battle against America and President Bush when authorities nabbed them after a 12-hour gunbattle, a senior police official said Wednesday. The South African suspects were identified as Feroz Ibrahim, believed to be in his 30s, and Zubair Ismail, a man in his 20s, said Raja Munawar Hussain, the chief of police in Gujrat, the eastern Pakistani city where they were arrested on July 25. Hussain told The Associated Press that authorities found several maps of South African cities among the items seized after the raid, which also netted Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, a Tanzanian with a $25 million bounty on his head for the 1998 twin East Africa embassy bombings.Full Story
