ISLAMABAD (AFP) - Abu Faraj Farj al-Libbi, allegedly number three in the Al-Qaeda network and a close associate of Osama bin Laden, has been captured in Pakistan. "I can confirm that we have arrested Abu Faraj al-Libbi," Sheikh Rashid, the country's information minister, told AFP Wednesday. Al-Libbi, a native of Libya, was captured along with five other foreign Al-Qaeda operatives over the weekend in the lawless Pakistani tribal area of North Waziristan, Rashid added. Pakistan has posted a reward of 20 million rupees (333,333 dollars) for the arrest of al-Libbi. The United States has also offered a five-million-dollar reward for his arrest. Pakistan's military leader President Pervez Musharraf has previously blamed al-Libbi for masterminding two attempts to kill him in December 2003.
