Police arrested seven suspected Taliban fighters after raiding a home in southwestern Pakistan, a senior police official said Friday. None of the men captured during the raid late Thursday in Quetta, the capital of southwestern Baluchistan province, appeared to be an important Taliban figure, said Abdul Qadir, a deputy inspector general of police. But officers were investigating to determine when the men arrived in the city and their reasons for being there, Qadir said. "We arrested them because they had no travel documents, and so far we only know that they are Taliban," he said, without giving more details. The arrests came less than a week after Pakistan deported 406 Afghans arrested for illegal entry in Baluchistan.
