US removes al Qaeda suspects from Malawi

"Five suspected al-Qaeda members arrested by Malawi have been handed to US authorities, despite an injunction blocking deportation."

"...State prosecutors say the five men - two from Turkey, one Saudi, one Sudanese and a Kenyan - were arrested in a joint operation run with US officials at the weekend, barely two weeks before President Bush is scheduled to visit Africa.

"A spokesmen for the police chief and interior ministry said that Malawi intelligence and immigration officers apprehended the men after they were identified by the US Central Intelligence Agency."
