Pakistani police have arrested nine suspected Islamic militants in connection with a suicide bombing at a U.S. mission and a deadly attack on French nationals in 2002, a police official said Tuesday. The arrested men belonged to the shadowy Harkat-ul Mujahideen al-Alami and included the group’s leader Syed Sohail Akhtar, alias Mustafa, said Police Chief Syed Kamal Shah. They were detained in the restive port city of Karachi in overnight raids, he said.
