An arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday for the Libyan national suspected of masterminding the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Africa.

Abu Anas al-Libi was captured October 5 and was being questioned aboard aboard the U.S.S. San Antonio in the Mediterranean Sea.

The U.S. attorney's office expects al-Libi to be presented to a judicial officer in federal court as early as Tuesday.

Officials say he arrived in New York Saturday, but it's unclear where he's being held.

The al-Qaeda suspect has been under a federal indictment for more than a decade in connection with the bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.

More than 200 were killed in those attacks, and thousands were wounded.
