Pakistan police say bombing plot in capital foiled
“Police arrested two suicide bombers in Pakistan’s capital Friday who they said were planning to attack a mosque and a government building.
Al-Qaida and Taliban militants seeking to topple the U.S.-allied government have carried out scores of attacks in recent years, killing thousands. The state has responded by launching offensives in the remote northwest where the insurgents are based.
Police officer Bin Yamin said the detained men were linked to the Pakistani Taliban in the South Waziristan region, where the Pakistani army has been fighting the militants since last year.”
