(Cairo) -- An arrest is made of a senior al-Qaeda leader at Cairo airport in Egypt.
An airport official says Saif al-Adel arrived in the city on a flight from Pakistan.
He's wanted by the U.S. for the 1998 embassy bombings in East Africa.
The Egyptian, whose real name is Muhammad Ibrahim Makkawi, was once Osama bin Laden's head of security and oversaw al-Qaeda's military operations.
