Authorities arrest alleged mastermind behind 9/11
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) — In a spectacular victory for the U.S.-led war on terrorism, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the Sept. ll attacks and a senior operative in Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaida network, was captured Saturday in a joint raid by CIA and Pakistani agents, officials said.
The arrest of Mohammed and two other men outside the Pakistani capital of Islamabad likely will hurt the terrorist organization’s ability to strike and could provide the United States with new clues in the hunt for bin Laden.
Mohammed, 37, is perhaps the most senior al-Qaida member after bin Laden and his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri.
A naturalized Pakistani who was bom in Kuwait, Mohammed is on the FBI’s most-wanted list and allegedly had a hand in many of al-Qaida’s most notorious attacks.
Mohammed is the third senior al-Qaida figure to be arrested in Pakistan. He was taken Saturday in Rawalpindi, a city near the Pakistani capital of Islamabad, Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said.
Iraq begins UN-ordered missile destruction
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — Iraq began crushing banned missiles with bulldozers Saturday, meeting a U.N. demand in an attempt to prevent a devastating U.S.-led attack. Washington dismissed the move and continued to push for war.
But President Bush’s preparations for a military showdown with Iraq suffered a severe setback when Turkey’s parliament failed to approve the deployment of 62,000 U.S. combat troops. The United States wants to use Turkey to open a northern front against Iraq if it launched a war.
Even Arab nations failed to find unity over the Iraq crisis, with a summit descending into an exchange of insults between Saudi Arabia’s crown prince and Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi. The United Arab Emirates called on Iraqi President Saddam Hussein to step down, but the leaders eventually agreed on a declaration rejecting any aggression on Iraq.
