The captured suspected al Qaeda operative Abu Anas el-Liby is on a Navy ship in the Mediterranean Sea, officials said Sunday. Abu Anas is not headed to Guantánamo Bay, but rather is expected to end up in New York, where he will stand trial for the 1998 embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya that killed 224. A computer expert, Abu Anas has been tied to a terrorism manual that details plans for “blasting and destroying the embassies and attacking vital economic centers.” The manual has been used in the 2001 conspiracy trial of four operatives as well as in the 2006 trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, the so-called 20th September 11th hijacker.
