QUETTA, Pakistan – A suspected al-Qaida operative who was captured along with another man during raids in this southwestern city is an “explosives expert” who had arrived here from Iran, a security official said Thursday.
The suspects, an Egyptian named Sharif al-Misri and another man of Middle Eastern origin identified as Abdul Hakeem, were caught Sunday when Pakistani intelligence agents acting on a tip raided a home in Quetta, the capital of the province of Baluchistan.
The arrests were announced Wednesday by Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed.
A security official who is familiar with the investigations of the two suspects told The Associated Press on Thursday that al-Misri had arrived in Pakistan from Iran, where his wife and children have been living since the U.S.-led coalition ousted the Taliban government from Afghanistan in late 2001.
“He (al-Misri) is an explosives expert. He has told us that his wife and children live in Iran,” said the official, who spoke only on condition of anonymity.
