GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — Police say that U.S. Muslim cleric Akbar Muhammad has been detained in the South American country of Guyana on suspicion of ties to drugs and terrorism.
Assistant Police Commissioner Seelal Persaud says officers raided the Princess Hotel in the capital of Georgetown Thursday and took Muhammad for questioning.
Persaud says police were acting on information that allegedly ties Muhammad to drugs and terrorism. He declined further comment.
Muhammad is a spokesman for Minister Louis Farrakhan.
It is unclear if U.S. federal authorities are investigating Muhammad. The FBI did not return a message seeking comment.
The Illinois-based Nation of Islam National Center also did not return a call for comment.
I wonder if we could of gotten that information from Walid Makled?
