Police detained a man Friday suspected of supplying the explosives used in last week's deadly blast at a mosque in southern India, authorities said. The suspect, a Muslim, was the first person picked up by police in connection with the bombing, and word of his detention came as police tightened security around the 17th century Mecca Masjid ahead of Friday prayers, which usually draws thousands of people.
