MISSING PAK SCIENTIST IN US COURT!!!

<table cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=200 align=right border=0><tr><td> Wounded and frail, Aafia facing charges in NY court
</TD></TR></TABLE>A US court has charged a Pakistani female scientist with attempted murder of US officers in Afghanistan and having links to the al-Qaeda.

The American officials allege that Aafia Siddiqui, a neuroscientist, was arrested on July 17 in Afghanistan while carrying documents on how to make explosives as well as various chemicals.

The complaint says she grabbed an officer's M-4 rifle in an interrogation room and fired but missed two shots. The officer fired back, hitting her in the torso.

Her lawyers, however, argue she is physically too weak to scuffle with several US officers.

Afghan police and the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan have cast doubts on the accuracy of the US account of the event.

"Siddiqui has for the past five years been held captive -- possibly in a secret US or allied prison -- and that attempted murder charges were invented as a pretext to bring her to US territory," said the attorneys.

Siddiqui vanished in Karachi, Pakistan with her three children on March 30, 2003. The next day it was reported in local newspapers that she had been taken into custody on terrorism charges.

She was named in a 2004 US list of suspects linked to al-Qaeda. She faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in jail on each charge, if found guilty.

"Aafia was tortured for five years until one day US authorities announce that they have found her in Afghanistan," her sister exclaimed.

According to her lawyers, Aafia is a devout Muslim and while she was in the US she took active part in fundraising for Islamic charities. US officials allege this was a cover for al-Qaeda funding.

Her case has given rise to a fresh wave of anti-American sentiment in Pakistan, prompting street protests against her detention.

Siddiqui graduated with honors in neuroscience from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
