Här är Al-Qaedas "svensk-marockan"

A Swedish citizen of Moroccan origin
appeared in an anti-terror court in
Morocco on Friday accused of participating
in a recruitment network for foreign
jihadis in Iraq, a judicial source said.
Ahmed Essafri, 54,
was reportedly arrested on December
25th in northern Morocco on suspicion
of being part of a 26-man "terrorist
structure" which was recruiting
volunteers to fight in Iraq.
The network allegedly had links with
Al-Qaeda and affiliated Algerian and
Moroccan terror groups.
Initial reports suggested that
Essafri may have been kidnapped,
but Moroccan authorities confirmed
to Swedish diplomats earlier this week
that he was in police custody.
The same anti-terror court also started
a trial Friday of an ex-Guantanamo
Bay prisoner who was handed over
by the United States to Morocco.
Mohamed Ben Moujane was arrested
in Afghanistan and accused of being
a member of Al-Qaeda.
Washington handed him to Morocco on
October 11.
