Al Qaeda bust in South Africa


South Africa's national police commissioner says authorities arrested and deported several individuals linked to the global al-Qaida terror network last month. It is the first time the government has documented activity of al-Qaida in South Africa.

National Police Commissioner Jackie Selebi says the arrest of several people linked to al-Qaida in South Africa led to raids and arrests in Jordan, Syria, and Great Britain.


It appears South African police are continuing to investigate whatever local connections the alleged al-Qaida operatives made here. Commissioner Selebi said the raids overseas yielded some very interesting evidence.

"In London, the British police found boxes and boxes of South African passports in a home of one of these people, or an associate of one of these people. Which says to me, there must be a link that people are able to acquire these documents," he says.
