Pakistan arrests suspected Mumbai plotter

December 8, 2008 14:23

A Pakistani government official says security forces have arrested a man alleged by India to be one of the masterminds of the Mumbai attacks. The official said Monday that Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi was among at least 12 people detained after a raid Sunday on a camp run by the banned militant group Laskhar-e-Taiba in Pakistan's part of Kashmir. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Indian officials say the sole Mumbai attacker captured alive has told them that Lakhvi recruited him for the mission and that Lakhvi and another militant, Yusuf Muzammil, were its masterminds.
