A Syrian-born German national accused of helping to plan the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States has been detained by Kurdish forces in Syria, a senior Kurdish commander told AFP on Wednesday.
Mohammed Haydar Zammar has been arrested by Kurdish security forces in northern Syria and is now being interrogated, the top official said, but did not provide further details.
Zammar, who is in his mid-fifties, has been accused of recruiting some of the September 11 hijackers.
He was detained in Morocco in December 2001 in an operation involving CIA agents, and was handed over to the Syrian authorities two weeks later.
A Syrian court sentenced Zammar to 12 years in prison in 2007 for belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood, a charge that at the time could have resulted in the death penalty.
Due to the civil war in Syria, many hardline Islamist prisoners have either been released from jail or broke free and went on to join jihadist groups fighting in the war.
Al-Qaeda, which was behind the 9/11 attacks, operated a branch in Syria known as the Al-Nusra Front. However, the two groups cut ties in late July of 2017. The group now goes by the name Fateh al-Sham and is designated a "foreign terrorist organization" by the U.S.
The Islamic State (ISIS) jihadist group also rose to power in the countrys north and east, but a U.S.-backed alliance has ousted it from swathes of its self-declared caliphate.
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a coalition of Arab and Kurdish fighters, has caught several foreign members of ISIS in Syria in recent months, particularly since the SDF captured the northern city of Raqa from the jihadists.

One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter, and Zammar faithfully fought freedom of every kind for decades.
I’ll ask for prayers that President Trump’s forces reach him before the Soros/Bush cabal.
I’d love to watch their interrogation techniques.
The CIA had him and didn't use the opportunity to kill him there and then. Stupid.
Aw crud - wrong thread
None of the 9/11 terrorists should have been brought back. They should have been killed the moment they were captured. They are enemy combatants. They should have no rights.
The clown on TV threatening to do more 9/11 attacks should never have been brought back. They should have dropped him where they found him.
He was detained in Morocco in December 2001
A whole lot of "detaining" going on. :-/
Assad's moronic supporters hardest hit!
Obama killed him and dumped him in the ocean.
No you wouldn't. Egyptians and Turks use to be terrible.
Egyptians find out if they were scared of spiders or snakes and then would use their scorpions or snakes on their victims....let the poison linger ...and then give them antivenin.
The Turks would place you in a chair for hours or days facing a wall with a small step ladder leaning against a list:
Next finger other hand
next toe other foot
etc.... After a few beatings, and no words EVER exchanged (they practiced silence), a well dressed man would walk in, set the step ladder up, mark off the top: little finger, put the ladder up, and produce a shear and chop off the little finger and then walk away. Not one word was said, no questions asked.
Victim would sit there for hours....and in comes the man again to repeat the steps above....in silence.
Turks told me they don't do this anymore, but they never got very far down on the list because they were spilling their guts by then.
Well kill it.
Catch and Release and Catch and ......
Kill the bastard.
