According to an update on Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) website, al Makki is a Yemeni national and has been working directly under the al Qaeda leaders along Pak-Afghan borders.
It also says that the arrest of Al Makki is a “major development” in unraveling the Al Qaeda network operating in the region.
The arrest followed a US covert operation in the garrison city of Abbottabad near Islamabad on May 2 that killed Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and comes after US senator John Kerry visited Pakistan on Monday to smooth a damaging row caused by the raid.
The raid rocked the country’s powerful security establishment, with its intelligence services and military widely accused of incompetence or complicity over the presence of bin Laden in a suburban house in Abbottabad.
