ANKARA: The United States has asked Turkey to extradite Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law Sulaiman Abu Ghaith after his detention in Ankara last week, a Turkish newspaper reported yesterday.
Abu Gaith, the former spokesman of the Al Qaeda terror network, was seized last week at a luxury hotel in Ankara after a tip-off from CIA, and is being held there by police, the Hurriyet newspaper said.
Ankara police declined to comment on the report while a spokesman for the US embassy in Ankara said it would not comment on terror-related cases.
“All I can tell you is that we cooperate with the Turkish authorities on various fields,” spokesman TJ Grubisha said.
