Video shows US capture of embassy bombings suspect Abu Anas al-Liby in Tripoli

It took less than a minute…

Video obtained by The Washington Post newspaper apparently shows the moment the United States captured one of its most wanted terror suspects, striking deep in the heart of the Libyan capital Tripoli.

The security camera footage is said to show Abu Anas al-Liby being grabbed from a car outside his house, thrown into a white van and driven away last October.

The alleged senior al Qaeda militant is now awaiting trial in New York.

He has denied involvement in the deadly bombings of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998. Some 224 people were killed in the blasts.

Following his abduction, al-Liby was initially kept on board a US Navy ship in the Mediterranean Sea for questioning. He was later taken to the United States to face charges when his health began deteriorating.
