Ghailani, wanted by the United States in the dual 1998 bombings at U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, reportedly was arrested Sunday in the eastern city of Gujrat along with at least 15 others. He is on the FBI's list of 22 most wanted terrorists, with a $5 million reward on his head. Hear NPR's Corey Flintoff and Khamran Khan of The Washington Post.
