German court orders arrest of 13 CIA agents

‘A German court has ordered the arrest of 13 people in connection with the alleged CIA-backed kidnapping of a German citizen, regarded as one of the most notorious US “renditions” of a terror suspect, prosecutors said.

The prosecutor’s office in Munich, southern Germany, said the city’s administrative court had issued the arrest warrants against individuals thought to be CIA agents on suspicion of abduction and grievous bodily harm.

Authorities are probing allegations by Khaled el-Masri, a Lebanese-born German, that he was abducted by US agents in the Macedonian capital Skopje on New Year’s Eve 2003.’
