Refuge for Al Qaeda in Honduras?

HONDURAS / 18 APR 2011 BY ELYSSA PACHICO EN

The U.S. Embassy in Honduras alerted migration authorities about the possible presence of two alleged Al Qaeda members, reported by Honduran newspaper La Prensa April 14. According to La Prensa, the United Nations Security Council also asked Honduras to freeze the accounts of the two Afghan men, Sahid Jhan Adga and Kalim Ad Raja Abdul. Honduras previously declared a national security alert in August 2004, after receiving reports that Al Qaeda was allegedly present in the country.
