He arrived on a commercial jet and went to a South Beach hotel. Federal officials did not immediately say whether McAfee would be questioned or detained in the United States.

The Army judge in the military commission trial for Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and four other suspected Sept. 11 plotters has issued a ruling that will keep secret any details about the defendants' arrests, their treatment and whether they were subjected to harsh interrogation techniques. The order, made public Wednesday, represents a victory for U.S. military and Justice Department prosecutors in the opening round of pretrial fights before the first trial related to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. The trial could start early next year.
