CANCUN, Mexico (AP) No evidence exists to back reports that al-Qaida terrorists are in Central America, the chief of the regional office for the international police agency Interpol said Wednesday.
Saul Hernandez said police in the region were on the watch for terrorists, but he said there was no evidence showing overseas terrorists have tried to contact Central American gangs.
Interviewed by a small group of reporters during Interpol’s annual assembly here, Hernandez said investigators also had been unable to confirm the presence in Central America of a suspected al-Qaida member, Adnan Gushair El Shukrijumah, despite earlier official reports he had been spotted in Honduras.
“We do not have information that effectively confirms that this person was there,” said Hernandez, who is also El Salvador’s police commissioner.
