Security forces weren't clear about the particulars of the arrest of French national Naamen Maziche, who was in charge of some of al-Qaida's international operations, CNN reported.
Officials said Maziche is a close aide of al-Qaida leader Younis al-Mauretani. Pakistani intelligence officials arrested Mauretani and three aides in September 2011, alleging he intended to attack targets in the United States, Europe and Australia.
