bin Laden Relative Captured

Sulaiman Abu Ghaith

Sulaiman Abu Ghaith

A relative of Usama bin Laden who carried on as a spokesman for al-Qaeda is said to be heading to the U.S. for prosecution.

FOX News Radio’s Rich Johnson reports from Washington:

Audio clip:

His name is Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, and sources tell FOX News he was the son-in-law of Usama bin Laden.  The sources say Abu Ghaith was apprehended some time ago and is most likely being taken to New York for prosecution.  You may recall the very loud objections to past plans to try terror suspects in New York.

A Turkish newspaper says Abu Ghaith was captured last month by Turkish authorities in Ankara, but was snatched by CIA agents in Jordan as he was being extradicted to Kuwait.  No comment from the CIA.
