Police seized two vehicles carrying about 1,000 kilograms of explosives, foiling a possible terror plot near Pakistan's capital. Senior police officer Rao Mohammed Iqbal said several suspects were arrested in the operation late Thursday in the garrison city of Rawalpindi. Two security officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to media, said Friday at least three men were arrested, suspected of wanting to target "sensitive installations."
