FBI Agent Arrested on Anti-Terrorism Charges in Pakistan After Ammunition Discovery

An FBI agent on temporary duty in Pakistan was arrested on anti-terrorism charges after authorities found ammunition in his luggage as he boarded a plane in Karachi, the Washington Post reports.

The agent is being held in jail until at least Saturday as Pakistani officials investigate the discovery Monday of 15 bullets and a magazine for a 9mm pistol in his bag, authorities there said.

The agent, who works in the Miami Field Office, was in court Tuesday on charges of violating local anti-terrorism laws that bar the possession of weapons or ammunition on a commercial flight.

U.S. officials confirmed the arrest but did not disclose his identity.

U.S. officials told the Post that the agent forgot to remove the ammunition and did not have a gun.
