A top al-Qaida leader, whose links stretch from Afghan terror training camps to extremist networks operating throughout Europe was captured in Pakistan, a US law enforcement official announced early Wednesday morning. Mustafa Setmarian Nasar, a Syrian who also holds Spanish citizenship, was captured in a November 2005 sting operation in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta that left one person dead, said the American official. Pakistani officials said that Nasar has since been flown out of the country to an unspecified location. The American official said Nasar, also known as Abu Musab al-Suri, may now be in US custody but did not specify where. He declined to comment further.
