WASHINGTON – Osama bin Laden’s spokesman and son-in-law has been captured by U.S. intelligence officials and has been brought to New York, CBS News has learned.

A law enforcement source confirmed to CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton that Sulaiman Abu Ghaith was arrested in Jordan and has been brought to New York to face terrorism-related charges.

The source told Milton that Ghaith is scheduled to be arraigned Friday on a sealed indictment in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in Manhattan.

The source confirmed to Milton that Ghaith was picked up in Jordan days ago, where he was apparently traveling to Kuwait from Turkey.

Abu Ghaith was charged Thursday with conspiring to kill Americans in his role as the terror network’s top propagandist who lauded the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 — and warned there would be more.
