Pakistan issues $1m al-Qaeda list

The Pakistani government has offered rewards totalling more than $1m for information leading to the capture of six leading al-Qaeda suspects. The “most wanted” list appeared on the front page of two leading newspapers. Rewards of 20m rupees ($340,000) each were placed on the heads of Abu Faraj al-Libbi and Amjad Hussain. The pair are suspected of being the main planners of two assassination attempts on President Pervez Musharraf last December. A senior Pakistani security official told the AFP agency the government believed, Faraj, a Libyan, was ranked third in the al-Qaeda hierarchy behind Osama bin Laden and his Egyptian deputy Ayman al-Zawahri. The official said Faraj, alias Dr Taufeeq, replaced Khalid Sheikh Mohammed who was captured in Pakistan in March last year. OODA Analyst
