The Central Intelligence Agency sends a request to Indonesia to arrest suspected 24-year-old al-Qaeda Operative Muhammad Saad Iqbal Madni and extradite him to Egypt. The CIA had found his name in al-Qaeda documents obtained in Afghanistan. The agency believes that Iqbal, a Pakistani, has worked with Richard C. Reid, the Briton charged with attempting to blow up an American Airlines flight from Paris to Miami on December 22 with explosives in his shoes.
