As U.S. interrogators have been dispatched to interrogate Abu Anas al-Liby, a suspected al Qaeda operative, Libya has spoken out against his rendition and the Obama administration has strongly defended the move.

The raid in Libya was first reported on Saturday, but as of Monday Obama administration officials said they still do not know what kind of legal process the suspect will face, according to the Guardian.

Al-Liby was indicted 13 years ago by the United States for his alleged role in embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania that killed over 220 people.

The United States has said that the capture of al-Liby in Tripoli was completely legal because al-Liby is “a key al-Qaeda figure,” according to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
