Lebanon IDs leader of al-Qaida-linked group

BEIRUT (AP) — DNA tests confirmed that a man in Lebanese custody is the suspected leader of an al-Qaida-linked group that has claimed responsibility for bombings across the Middle East, the Lebanese army said today. In a brief statement, the military said the tests established the detainee’s identity as Majid al-Majid, a Saudi citizen and the commander of the Abdullah Azzam Brigades. Al-Majid is on Saudi Arabia’s list of 85 most-wanted individuals, and the U.S. State Department has designated the group he leads a foreign terrorist organization.
