Interpol after 47 Saudis for alleged al-Qaida ties

Last updated: 11 January, 2011
Paris, Jan 11, (AP):

Interpol says it has placed 47 Saudis with alleged links to the al-Qaida terror network on its most-wanted list.

The publication by the international police body yesterday means all 188 member countries have received details about the suspects so that national police forces can help track them down.

Over the weekend, Saudi Arabia asked Interpol for its help in tracking the suspects - all Saudi nationals - beyond its borders. Saudi officials say they are believed to be planning attacks in the kingdom.

Saudi Arabia routinely releases lists of wanted al-Qaida suspects. The country has aggressively battled the group since a series of attacks inside the kingdom that began in 2003. An al-Qaida offshoot has been active in neighbouring Yemen.
