Pakistan has arrested nine men suspected in a string of deadly bombings last year that wrecked the Danish Embassy, killed an army general and wounded several FBI personnel, police said. A police statement on Thursday said the men had traveled to Waziristan, a stronghold of the Taliban and al-Qaida near the Afghan border. Rawalpindi police Chief Rao Mohammed Iqbal told reporters that the men had links with Baitullah Mehsud, Pakistan's top Taliban leader. Police accused the nine suspects of involvement in the bombing of an Italian restaurant in Islamabad in March. A Turkish aid worker died and at least 12 other people were wounded, including four FBI personnel.
