Osama bin Laden's Son-in-Law Captured
March 7, 2013
(NEW YORK) -- Osama bin Laden's son-in-law, a suspected member of al Qaeda, has been captured, according to Rep. Pete King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence.
Turkish media reported earlier Thursday that the man, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, was taken into custody in the Turkish capital of Ankara last month in a joint operation between the CIA and Turkish intelligence. He was recently deported to Jordan and from there will be taken to the U.S., according to Turkish reports and the Wall Street Journal. King confirmed Ghaith's capture but did not discuss the details of the operation or Ghaith's extradition.
Representatives for the CIA did not immediately return requests for comment.
