Pakistani agents killed an al-Qaida suspect in a shootout and are investigating whether another man arrested in the same raid is a Syrian and a key figure in Osama bin Laden's terror network in Europe, the government and intelligence officials said Thursday. "I can only confirm that there was an encounter, and our security forces arrested one suspected al-Qaida terrorist while another terrorist was killed," Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed told The Associated Press. He did not identify the suspects. Intelligence officials said a third suspect from a Pakistani militant group was also captured in the raid this week in Quetta, the capital of Pakistan's southwestern Baluchistan province.
