A senior State Department official who oversees counter-terrorism programs has been arrested on suspicion of soliciting sex from a minor, authorities in Virginia said late Tuesday.

Daniel Rosen was arrested at his home in Washington just after noon and is being held in the city’s jail on suspicion of use of a communications device to solicit a juvenile, said Lucy Caldwell, spokeswoman for the Fairfax County Police Department.

Caldwell said Rosen’s arrest was the result of an online exchange between him and detectives in her agency’s child exploitation unit.

He is expected to be extradited to the Fairfax County Jail soon.
