Al Qaeda terrorist Abu Anas al Libi, snatched off the streets in Libya last week by U.S. soldiers, is expected to appear in federal court in New York Tuesday on his way to being tried in the United States for terrorism.
Al Libi’s wife has claimed that he has nothing to do with Al Qaeda anymore, while New York Republican Congressman Peter King said that putting him on trial deprives investigators of the chance to learn more from him about Al Qaeda operations.
Al Libi was indicted in New York in 2001 in the bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania and for allegedly involvement in Al Qaeda attacks on American soldiers in Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Somalia.
