KARACHI, Pakistan — Pakistani airport authorities detained a passenger after electrical circuits and batteries were found in the soles of his tennis shoes, officials said Monday.

An initial investigation showed that the devices were used for massaging the feet, but the circuits could have other uses and authorities were continuing to examine them, senior police official Tanvir Aalam Odho said.

The man, Faiz Mohammad, was arrested Sunday night at the Karachi airport.
