Arrests linked to mosque leader

November 01, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

The FBI said two men linked to the slain leader of a Detroit mosque have been arrested in Ontario, Canada.

Mohammad Philistine and Yassir Ali Khan were taken into custody across the border from Detroit, according to the FBI.

They were the last of 11 men sought in a federal criminal complaint that listed several charges, including conspiracy to sell stolen goods.

Also charged was Luqman Ameen Abdullah, a Detroit mosque leader who was fatally shot Wednesday by federal agents trying to arrest him. The FBI said he had an anti-government ideology, but Abdullah's colleagues deny that. Hundreds attended his funeral Saturday.
