Iraqi man arrested in Romania
Bucharest - Prosecutors have arrested an Iraqi man on the suspicion he helped five of his countrymen who were members of al-Qaeda hide in Romania.
Prosecutors said Friday that Mohamad al-Dulaimi created phantom companies in Romania, starting in 2006, to allow the Iraqis to travel in and out of the country.
They said in a statement that the men were wanted for terrorist attacks in Iraq, but provided no further details. Prosecutors said al-Dulaimi will be indicted on charges that he helped terrorists.
Prosecutors say the five Iraqis are no longer in Romania.
In 2008, al-Dulaimi obtained a residence visa for Romania on the grounds that he did business here.
