Man in Arizona accused of being Al Qaeda leader by Iraq: feds
A man the Iraqi government says is an Al Qaeda leader has been arrested in Arizona, prosecutors said.
Authorities in Iraq have accused Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri, 42, of killing two police officers in Fallujah in 2006 with other members of the terror group founded by Usama Bin Laden, Arizona federal prosecutors said.
Al-Nouri was arrested Wednesday in Phoenix and appeared before a federal magistrate Friday. The FBI and U.S. Marshals arrested him after Iraq requested his extradition.
