(CNN) — The United States has brought Abu Anas al Libi — an alleged al Qaeda operative whom U.S. Army Delta Force soldiers captured in Libya this month — to New York, a U.S. attorney’s office said Monday.

He was transferred to law enforcement custody over the weekend, the office of Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said.

Al Libi is expected to appear before a judicial officer on Tuesday, the office said.

The U.S. special operations forces captured al Libi in Tripoli more than a week ago. He is accused of playing a role in the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.
