Dreaded terrorist Osama bin Laden's close aide and a top Al Qaeda leader was arrested from the outskirt of Pakistan's southern port city Karachi.

Pakistani security forces with the help of US intelligence arrested Abu Yahya Mujahdeen Al- Adam, who was a close associate of Osama Bin Laden and included in the CIA's list of ten most wanted terrorists.

Abu Yahy was arrested Sunday and has been shifted to Islamabad for further investigation, the DawnNews reported quoting sources.

The militant was believed to have been living with Osama bin Laden after september 11, 2001 attacks in New York.

Pennsylvania-born Abu Yahya is a US citizen and assumed to be a commander of foreign militants fighting in Afghanistan, the report said.
