Algiers, 26 Sept. (AKI) - Algerian police have reportedly arrested a suspected member of al Qaeda charged with recruiting young militants in Tunisia and Algeria to be sent to Iraq. Algerian daily al-Khabar said on Tuesday that the militant, whose nom de guerre is Abu al-Ham, sent the Tunisians and Algerians he had recruited for training to the Algerian-based Salafite Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC), which has sworn allegiance to al-Qaeda.

The militants were reportedly then sent to Iraq through Syria, where Abu al-Ham had lived until March 2005, when he had moved to Algiers, the paper said.

Al-Ham was also reportedly in the process of organising a terror cell in Tunisia.
