A US citizen suspected of having links to al-Qaeda has been arrested in Yemen, officials have told the BBC.

The man was detained in Ataq, in the province of Shabwa, the scene of an ongoing conflict between Islamist militants and Yemen’s armed forces.

He was then transferred by military plane to the capital, Sanaa, where he was being investigated by the security services, the officials said.

The arrest took place on Monday. No details were given about his identity.

The man was wearing Arab clothes when he was arrested in the Sharqa Hotel in Ataq, according to a report on the privately-owned Yemeni news website, Yemen Fox, which quoted a local official.

The suspect spoke English, said he was a Muslim, and had three passports – two US and one German – in his possession, another official was quoted by the AFP news agency as saying.

That’s the second mysterious U.S. citizen arrested or convicted on terrorism charges outside the U.S. in a week. Again, neither the media nor the White House can provide any information on who our fellow citizen terrorists are?

Meanwhile, Obama and Holder are releasing jihadis from Gitmo and importing non-U.S. Muslim terrorists to the U.S.
