Three American soldiers were killed in combat Saturday in Iraq's volatile Anbar province west of Baghdad, the U.S. military said.
Germany's federal prosecutor's office announced Saturday it has arrested a German of Moroccan descent on charges that he recruited suicide bombers for Iraq and financially supported the al Qaeda terrorist network.
A German court has convicted a Moroccan man for belonging to a terrorist group, but acquitted him on charges of accessory to murder in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.
A key al Qaeda suspect in U.S. custody has said a Moroccan man on trial in Germany had no knowledge of the September 11 attack plot, according to an interrogation summary.
The United States has said it will not let key al Qaeda suspects in its custody testify at the retrial of the only September 11 suspect ever to be convicted.
The only suspect convicted in the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States has been released from a German jail, pending a retrial.
