Police arrested two members of an outlawed Islamic terror group suspected of planning a suicide attack that killed more than 40 people at a religious festival last year, an official said Monday. The alleged members of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi group were arrested Saturday after police received information about their hide-out in Karachi's Jamshed Quarters neighborhood, Karachi police chief Azhar Faruqi said. The men - identified as Mufti Zakir, an Islamic cleric who ran a seminary, and Rehmat Ullah - are suspected of orchestrating the attack at a gathering of thousands of Sunni Muslims in Karachi in April 2006. More than 40 people were killed at the festival marking the birthday of the prophet Muhammad.
