The Saudi government has issued a list of its 83 most wanted suspects living abroad and asked Interpol for help in arresting them, a Saudi-owned TV network said Monday. Al-Arabiya satellite news channel quoted an Interior Ministry statement as saying the list includes six former Saudi Guantanamo detainees who were released. The report only gave the name of one suspect, Saleh al-Qaraawi, describing him as the leader of Al-Qaida in Saudi Arabia. There were also two Yemenis on the list. The report did not give details about the suspects' whereabouts. The leader of the Al-Qaida terror network, Osama bin Laden, is a Saudi and the conservative kingdom has battled its Islamist rebels in past years.
