ISLAMABAD — The co-owner of a catering company that organized events for the US Embassy is among six men detained by Pakistan for allegedly helping the failed Times Square bombing suspect, a senior Pakistani intelligence official said Friday.

In a statement on its website, the US Embassy warned Friday that the catering company was suspected of ties to terrorist groups and said American diplomats had been instructed to stop using the firm.

Like Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani-American accused in the failed New York bombing, the six Pakistani detainees were all members of their country's urban elite, including several who were educated in the United States. One was a former army major.
