Officials said Abu Anas al-Liby, whose real name is Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, had been questioned on board a navy ship while travelling to the US.

He is accused of links with al-Qaeda and involvement in the 1998 bombings of US embassies in East Africa.

Mr Liby was indicted by a New York grand jury in 2000.

The US attorney for the southern district of New York, Preet Bharara,said in a statement that Mr Liby was transferred to law enforcement custody at the weekend.

The 49-year-old was likely to be presented before a judicial officer on Tuesday, he added.
