Ireland: 'Best place to assassinate President Obama'

Via the Belfast Telegraph:
Police in Dublin are interrogating a 44-year-old Muslim convert in connection with alleged threats to kill US President Barack Obama.

The suspect, Khalid Kelly, who is a converted Muslim, made the alleged remarks in a Sunday newspaper article.

Mr Kelly was arrested at his home in Dublin's north inner city early yesterday and taken to a police station for questioning. He can be held in custody for up to three days without charge.

Born Terry Kelly, from the Liberties area of Dublin, he converted to Islam while serving a jail sentence in Saudi Arabia for illegally distilling and selling alcohol. He later travelled to Pakistan, where he claimed he trained with tribal warlords with the intention of going to Afghanistan.
