Paper: Seattle Bomb Plot Suspect Arrested

A man indicted in Seattle and accused of a terrorist bomb plot was arrested in Algeria, The New York Times reported today.

Investigators say Abdelmajid Dahoumane was an accomplice of Ahmed Ressam.

Ressam was arrested last December in Port Angeles after he was caught arriving by ferry with explosives in his car.

Officials believe the two men made the explosives together in British Columbia and planned to bomb New Year’s celebrations in Seattle.

Bin Laden-Related Questions

The paper says Algerian police have been questioning Dahoumane not only about activities in Canada and the United States but also about possible links to a terrorist network headed by Osama bin Laden.

He’s accused of bombing two U.S. embassies in Africa.

Meanwhile, Ressam is scheduled for trial in March in Los Angeles.
