Raids Suggest Future Shape Of Counterterror Bids

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. commando raids in Libya and Somalia suggest what the future shape of U.S. counterterrorism efforts might be - brief, targeted raids against highly sought extremist figures.

Saturday's strikes also highlight the rise of Africa as a terrorist haven.

And they raise questions about where to interrogate and try captured terrorist suspects such as Abu Anas al-Libi, who was captured in the Libyan capital by U.S. special forces.

He's accused by the U.S. of involvement in the 1998 bombings of two American embassies in Africa.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says al-Libi is in U.S. custody, but officials aren't saying where.
