Got Two in the Philippines
Two American brothers have been arrested in the Philippines for links to terrorism: Philippines Arrest Two U.S. Brothers.
Michael Ray Stubbs and his brother James, a convert to Islam, have been held at an undisclosed location since they were arrested earlier this month in the town of Tanza in Cavite province, 21 miles southwest of Manila, an immigration official said on condition of anonymity.
The official said the brothers were of Middle Eastern origin but gave no other details. The authorities did not disclose the exact charges the men could face or provide details about their alleged links to terrorism.
Their hometowns were not available and the U.S. Embassy could not immediately be reached for comment. More information was expected to be released Tuesday.
