NEW YORK - A US court Tuesday announced the indictment of Dr Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani neuroscientist, for allegedly attacking US agents in Afghanistan. Dr Siddiqui, 36, who is suffering from bullet wounds, was arrested in the Afghan town of Ghazni on July 17 by Afghan police. She is facing charges of attempting to murder the Americans. Her lawyers say the incident was invented as a pretext to bring her to US territory. Her arrest was the first time in five years she had been seen publicly and her family and lawyers insist  she had been held captive since disappearing in Pakistan in 2003 - possibly in a secret US or allied prison.
