3 Suspects Arrested in Pakistan Attack

Police arrested three suspected militants for questioning about last week’s suicide attack on a mosque that killed more than 50 Shiite Muslim worshippers, a senior police official said Wednesday. More than 30 people are now in custody over last Friday’s attack in Quetta, the capital of southwestern Baluchistan province, provincial police chief Shoaib Suddle said. The latest arrests, in the village of Match, 30 miles east of Quetta, were made as a result of police investigations and questioning of suspects already in custody, Suddle said. The attackers have not been identified. Pakistan on Tuesday offered a reward of $34,500 for information leading to the arrest of those who organized the suicide attack. Two of the assailants died in a shootout with guards at the mosque. A third blew himself up inside the mosque. Shiite Muslims leaders said the assailants were not Pakistanis, but they did not identify their nationality. Full Story
