Intelligence agents arrested two British nationals of Pakistani origin who provided information on the terror plot aimed at blowing up US-bound passenger jets from Britain, a senior government official said Friday. One suspect was arrested in the eastern city of Lahore and the second was picked up in Karachi, Pakistan's main port on the Arabian Sea, the official said on condition of anonymity because he did not have authority to speak formally on the issue. "Our intelligence agencies made the arrests about one week ago," he said. He did not have details on whether the suspects have links with al-Qaida or any Pakistani militant group.
