Wanted al Qaeda member surrenders: Saudi police

Posted by on August 5, 2011 0 Comment

Riyadh: Saudi Arabia says an al Qaeda member on the kingdom’s most-wanted list has turned himself in after calling his family from abroad.

Interior Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Mansour al-Turki said in a statement Wednesday that the suspect told his relatives of his wish to come home.

Authorities subsequently arranged Abdel-Salam Rashed al-Farraj’s return to Saudi Arabia. He was on the kingdom’s 47-most-wanted list and is described as a very dangerous militant, well-trained in weapons.

Al-Turki didn’t say when al-Farraj returned but said he has been reunited with his family.

Al-Farraj’s whereabouts outside Saudi Arabia were not disclosed. Many al Qaeda militants fled to neighboring Yemen after a crackdown in the kingdom. Zeenews
