Report: Najaf blast - two suspected Saudi al Qaeda members arrested over e-mail
Two Saudi Arabians arrested shortly after the recent devastating car bombing in Najaf, that killed prominent Shiite cleric Mohammad Baqer al-Hakim, were picked up when passers-by noticed them sending an e-mail that read, "Mission accomplished: The dog is dead."
According to Monday's edition of The Times of London, the two suspects went to an Internet cafe following the explosion to send the e-mail.
When others saw the message they were sending, they grabbed the two men and turned them over to police authorities.
For their part, the men admitted that they were Saudis working for the al Qaeda network. (Albawaba.com)
