Terrorism: March 20, 2003


Six unidentified armed Americans, accompanied by members of a Somali militia group, apprehended a presumed Yemeni national from a hospital in Somalia's capital on the 18th and promptly flew him out of the country. The staff of the Kaysaney hospital named the man, suspected of having links to al-Qaeda, only as Issa and said he was carrying a South African passport. The team that arrested the Yemeni arrived from Nairobi a day earlier and their plane stayed overnight at Aisaley airport (not far from the hospital). - Adam Geibel
