Police were searching for a terrorist suspect who disappeared while under a type of partial house arrest known as a control order, the government said Thursday. The suspect, a foreign national who was placed under a control order in November 2005, appeared to have fled on Monday night, said Security, Counter Terrorism and Police Minister Tony McNulty. His escape brings to seven the number of people under control orders who have absconded. "Public safety is the top priority for the government and the police," McNulty told lawmakers. "Locating this individual is an operational matter for the police, and an active investigation is under way." The man's identity was not being released at the request of police, McNulty said.
