He's considered one of world's most dangerous terrorism suspects, and the U.S. offered a $1-million reward for his capture in 2005. Intelligence experts say he's a master bomb maker and extremist leader who possesses a wealth of information about Al Qaeda-linked groups in Southeast Asia. Yet the U.S. has made no move to interrogate or seek custody of Indonesian militant Umar Patek since he was apprehended this year by officials in Pakistan with the help of a CIA tip, U.S. and Pakistani officials say. The little-known case highlights a sharp difference between President Obama's counter-terrorism policy and that of his predecessor, George W. Bush.

Several commanders within Afghanistan's opposition forces committed "serious" human rights abuses in the 1990s, and the United States should avoid using them in its anticipated conflict with the Taliban regime, a human rights group said Saturday. "The U.S. and its allies should not cooperate with commanders whose record of brutality raises questions about their legitimacy inside Afghanistan," said Sidney Jones, executive director of the Asia division of Human Rights Watch in New York.

The Bush Administration acknowledged Monday that it secretly gave China a list last spring of more than 800 political or religious prisoners that it said should be released from Chinese jails but so far has received little response from officials in Beijing. The list, which senior State Department officials gave to the Chinese Embassy in Washington, conflicts with the Chinese government's continuing claims that there are no political prisoners in the country.
