CIA Part of Investigation of ‘Düsseldorf Cell’

Security officials in Germany arrested three suspects who may be linked to al-Qaida on Friday. The men could be the first group connected to the international terrorist group to be uncovered in the country since Mohammed Atta’s Hamburg-based 9/11 terror cell. One of the men is believed to have had regular contact with al-Qaida.


The arrest of three suspected al-Qaida members in the western German state of North Rhine-Westphalia on Friday followed a months-long investigation that, in addition to the     German authorities, also included the participation of the CIA and Moroccan secret service. The German Federal Office of Criminal Investigation (BKA) created its own special “Comet” investigative unit to look into the case.
