Al Qaeda Army in Libya: Report

CNN reports that earlier this year a trusted Al Qaeda jihadist was sent to Libya as the nation was undergoing revolution, according to a Libyan source. The man is a trusted comrad of leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, and was arrested in Britain under terrorism suspicion in 2005. Known as “AA,” the man has recruited nearly 200 fighters in the eastern part of the nation, by Egypt’s border. Western intelligence agencies, however, are reportedly aware of his presence.
