The official identified the man as Syed Fai of Fairfax, Va. Fai is charged with being an unregistered agent of a foreign government.

Also known as Ghulam Nabi Fai, Fai is the executive director of the Kashmiri American Foundation, which India has viewed for many years as a front for the Pakistani government.

The arrest adds new strain to the already difficult relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan, which suffered after the U.S. found Osama bin Laden hiding inside Pakistan and killed him without telling the government there.

The official spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing and court documents have not been released.
