      AZZAM NEWS FOR AUGUST 2,2002

      1) British Woman Journalist Who was Held by Taliban Embraces Islam

      Kabul (Azzam): According to recent information, British journalist Yvonne
      Ridley who was arrested and held during the Taliban rule in Afghanistan,
      has now embraced Islam after studying the Holy Quran. She went to
      Afghanistan illegally a few days prior to US attacks.

      Taliban police arrested her when she was trying to enter the tribal
      regions of Pakistan via unusual paths in Jalalabad province's Door Rubaya
      district. She was initially held in Jalalabad and later shifted to Kabul.
      Immediately after her release and arrival in Pakistan, when asked by a
      massive crowd of journalists about her treatment by the Taliban, she said
      they were like brothers. On her return to England while speaking to the
      BBC, Yvonne Ridley said that she had not seen such noble, brave and
      straight forward men like the Taliban throughout her life. All of the men
      were men of their words, she added. The articles she wrote describing her
      eleven days in Taliban custody were published in all the leading
      newspapers of the world. '11 Days in the Prison of the Taliban' is a book
      that has so far sold millions of copies around the world and is a proof of
      the justice and sincerity of the Taliban.

      2) Arrest and Holding of Suspected Muslim British Citizens without Charges
      is Illegal Says British Immigration Appeal Commission

      London (Azzam): The British Immigration Appeal Commission has termed the
      arrest of several Muslim British citizens under the Anti-Terrorism Act as
      illegal. According to the British newspaper, the Guardian, under the
      British anti terrorism act of 2001, the UK government can hold anyone who
      is not a British citizen on the basis of suspicion and can investigate him
      or her. The British government set up this law after the 9/11 attacks and
      several individuals were arrested as suspects allegedly having hidden
      links with Al-Qaida.

      The Appeal Commission in its statement said that arresting British Muslim
      citizens according to the same law and on the same principles is illegal,
      because this law is only applicable to those who are not British. The
      Commission also blamed the British government for illegally holding these
      arrested Muslim citizens and not charging them. Despite this, they are
      still being held secretly in high security holding facilities. It must be
      noted among those arrested and held under this anti-terrorism act are nine
      British Muslims accused of having links with Al-Qaida.
