U.S. Commandos Grab Al Qaeda Leader in 30 Seconds

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) Gone in 30 seconds: A new, dramatic video shows U.S. commandos nabbing a top terror suspect in Libya. And if you blink, you'll miss it.

Here's how it went down: A dark car parks in front of a home. A white van stops next to it. Men leap from the van, pointing guns. They pull a man out and shove him into the van. The van speeds away.

In less than 30 seconds, the United States had taken suspected al Qaeda member Anas al-Libi into custody. The security video of the lightning-quick capture was published yesterday in The Washington Post.

Al-Libi is accused of having a key role in the 1998 bombings of American embassies in Africa. More than 200 died in those attacks. Al-Libi is now in New York awaiting trial.
