The US Navy is holding an Al-Qaeda operative in custody onboard a ship in the Mediterranean Sea. Abu Anas al-Libi was captured in Libya and faces prosecution in New York for bombing multiple US embassies in 1998. Libyan officials are accusing the US of “kidnapping” since officials haven't read the suspect his rights read or provided him with a lawyer. Al-Libi’s wife claims he left the organization two years prior to the attacks.
