Question: Are the persons recently arrested in Ireland and Yemen, who are believed to be connected with the “Jihad Jane” case, American citizens? If so, has there been any consular contact with them at either location?
Answer: We have seen the reports and, as in any arrest case, our Embassies in Dublin and Sana’a are working to verify with local authorities whether any U.S. citizens have been arrested.
