One of the most wanted criminals in Saudi Arabia is considered the number one suspect in a plot to send bombs to the U.S. on cargo planes.
The Saudi government describes Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri as an expert in poisons and explosives. Meantime, a woman arrested over the weekend in Yemen as a suspect in the bomb plot has been released. Thousands rallied in support of Hanan al-Samawi this morning on the campus of Sanaa University in the Yemeni capital. Authorities have said Samawi’s identity was stolen and she was not involved in the alleged plot.
