WASHINGTON, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Senior al-Qaida figure Anas al-Liby, indicted by the United States for his alleged role in the 1998 bombings of US embassies in East Africa, was captured in Libya by a US team and is in American custody, US officials said on Saturday.

The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said a second US raid in Somalia had failed to capture a leader of the al Shabaab militant group who was the raid's target.
