Al-Jazeera Reporter Held in Spain

BBC says an Al-Jazeera television reporter accused of links with al-Qaeda has been re-arrested in Spain. Tayseer Alouni and a second suspect, Jamal Hussein, were ordered to be taken into custody on the grounds that they might flee. They had originally been bailed for health reasons before the verdicts in their case, due later this month. Mr Alouni denies using a posting in Afghanistan to distribute money to the militant Islamic network. The prosecution says the reporter, who holds dual Syrian and Spanish citizenship, had an "intense and continuous" relationship with Immad Yarkas, known as Abu Dahdah, who is also on trial.
