German Islamist linked to 9/11 hijackers captured in Syria

Mohammed Haydar Zammar, a German-Syrian al Qaeda recruiter thought to have influenced the 9/11 terrorist attacks and who knew some of the hijackers, has been captured by Kurdish forces in Syria, writes David Brennan for Newsweek.

Zammar is currently being interrogated. The 9/11 Commission Report describes him as someone who “relished any opportunity to extol the virtues of violent jihad.”

The arrest has yet to be confirmed by U.S. coalition forces.
