Osama bin Ladenís son-in-law was arrested in Ankara by Turkish security forces after Washington allegedly informed Turkeyís National Intelligence Organization (M›T) about his location, daily Milliyet reported today.
Suleyman M., son-in-law of former al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, was allegedly staying at a camp in Iran after the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center in 2001.
He entered Turkey using a fake Saudi Arabian passport. Daily Milliyet claimed that the United States learned Suleyman M. was in Ankara and informed M›T. Turkish security forces captured him at a hotel in «ankaya district of Ankara.
U.S. Navy SEALS killed al-Qaeda leader Bin Laden at his compound in Pakistan on May 4, 2011. Kuwait revoked Suleyman M.ís citizenship after the U.S. issued an arrest warrant for him on charges of involvement in terrorist activities.
A Turkish court decided to release Suleyman M. on the grounds that he had not committed any crimes other than entering the country with a fake passport. However, he was not released and was returned to the police department for extradition from the country. The daily also said Suleyman M. would be extradited back to Iran. The U.S. reportedly asked Turkey to give Suleyman M. to the U.S. for interrogation on alleged al-Qaeda activities.
