From the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA), June 20:
The local leader of Hamas was arrested in an often lawless frontier area where Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina meet. Brazilian and Paraguayan news agencies confirmed June 17 that Saiel Bashar Yahya Al Atary and 21 others described as Islamic terrorists had been arrested by Brazilian federal police in the city of Foz de Iguazu. The men were charged with being part of an international ring that committed credit card fraud, counterfeited documents and was involved in drug trafficking.
The tri-border area is thought to be a center of Islamic terrorism and, especially, a financial center for money laundering for terrorists from the Middle East.
We recently noted the growing US military presence in Paraguay.
