Female engineering student arrested in alleged terror plot

A female engineering student has been arrested in Yemen as authorities investigate an apparent plot to bomb airplanes with devices hidden inside computer printers, a Yemeni human rights lawyer said.

Hanan Al-Samawi is a fifth-year student at Sanaa University, in Yemen's capital, said Abdul-Rahman Barman. The student's mother, Amatulillah Mohammed, has also been arrested, Barman told CNN, calling the arrest of the mother illegal.

The lawyer and human rights activist does not know where the mother and daughter are, he said, adding that authorities holding them in an unknown location "is a criminal act."

The student's father, Mohammed Al-Samawi, said she is innocent, according to Barman. READ FULL STORY

    Iam not a muslim. Iam christian. I just wanted to post the actual vers in the Quran that was "quoted" in earlier posts. Sounds similar to "eye for an eye" to me.I just hate when people choose words or use words out of context for arguing purposes. [2:191] You may kill those who wage war against you, and you may evict them whence they evicted you. Oppression is worse than murder. Do not fight them at the Sacred Masjid, unless they attack you therein. If they attack you, you may kill them. This is the just retribution for those disbelievers.
