Brazilian and Paraguayan news agencies confirmed last Friday that Saiel Bashar Yahya Al Atary and 21 others described as Islamic terrorists had been arrested by Brazilian Federal Police in the city of Foz de Iguazu. The men were charged with being part of an international ring that committed credit card fraud, counterfeited documents and was involved in drug trafficking.
