Two French citizens jailed in southern Italy since last year are important point-men in Europe for al-Qaida and might have been planning attacks abroad, Italian anti-terrorism officials said Tuesday. The officials said the two men were being served warrants on Tuesday accusing them of being terrorists. The men have been held in Bari since November when they were arrested on suspicion of helping illegal immigration. "They are two important point-men in Europe" for al-Qaida, said Claudio Garzellano, an official of Italy's anti-terrorism police division UCIGOS, on Italian state radio. The two are suspected of recruiting militants for al-Qaida in Afghanistan and spreading terrorism propaganda, Garzellano said.
