Pakistan Says It Has Foiled Terror Plots

Pakistan has arrested at least five al-Qaida-linked terrorists who were plotting suicide attacks on government leaders and the U.S. Embassy, officials announced Saturday. Security forces captured five or six suspects — one Egyptian, the others Pakistani — in the past week across the country, and seized some weapons, Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed told reporters. He said authorities were hunting for four to five other suspects, and that those already detained had “wanted to kill hundreds of innocent people” and cause unrest in Pakistan. Interior Minister Faisal Saleh Hayyat told The Associated Press, however, that a “gang” of a dozen suspects was captured. OODA Analyst
