Riyadh, March 27 (IANS) A senior Al Qaeda leader has voluntarily returned home in Saudi Arabia and surrendered himself to the authorities, a media report said.
Fahad al-Ruwaily was on the list of Saudi Arabia’s 85 most wanted militants living abroad, Geo TV reported quoting the interior ministry as saying.
Fahad returned to Saudi Arabia Wednesday, Interior Ministry spokesman Mansour al-Turki said without giving further details.
Al-Ruwaily was a key figure in Al Qaeda training camps along Syria’s border with Iraq. He provided Al Qaeda fighters with weapons and forged travel documents to help them enter Iraq from Syria.
The Saudis appealed in February for 85 suspects to surrender, offering to reunite them with their families after rehabilitation.
