Pakistan

    Pakistan has officially confirmed that it has arrested two senior members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, an organization that India sees as the chief suspect in the Mumbai attacks. The arrests took place at a camp in the Pakistan-administered part of Kashmir. Islamabad has already announced that it will not transfer any suspects to India. New Delhi has released the names or aliases of the nine gunmen involved in the attacks. Police say that all nine came from Pakistan. India has requested that the UN Security Council place the Pakistani Islamic charity Jamaat-ud-Dawa on the list of terrorist organizations. New Delhi claims the group is a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba, which is already on the UN terrorist blacklist. (Radio Netherlands)
