    A senior al Qaeda commander has been reported to have been captured in the Pakistani city of Lahore, according to a Pakistani newspaper. Dr. Amin al Haq, the security coordinator of Osama bin Laden's Black Guard, "was apprehended from Lahore couple of days back," The Nation reported, citing "credible Afghan sources." Al Haq is said to be "under interrogation" at an undisclosed location.

    The report of al Haq's capture has not been confirmed, a senior intelligence official told The Long War Journal. US intelligence agencies are aware of the report.


    Dr Amin is the second leading Al-Qaeda operative from Afghanistan apprehended in Lahore. Earlier, Mohammad Rahim, an alleged Al-Qaeda fugitive, who had worked as Osama bin Laden's driver for couple of years in Afghanistan was also arrested from Lahore.
    He had also been the member of Jihadi Shura, which was set up soon after resignation of late Afghan President Dr Najibullah in April 1992 for governing the eastern province of Nangarhar. He was associated with Hizbe Islami Afghanistan headed by late Maulvi Younas Khalis, which joined Taliban Movement in 1996.
    Dr Amin was also part of the Afghan delegation flown to Sudan in 1996 to bring Osama bin Laden to Afghanistan.
    After landing of Osama bin Laden in Nangarhar in 1996, Dr Amin became closer to Osama bin Laden and other Al-Qaeda leaders. He along with his family members stayed in Pakistan off and on. It merits to mention that Dr Amin's name is in the list of those 12 Afghans who are considered active members of Al-Qaeda.
