A judge on Saturday said police can hold eight suspected militants for a week in connection with attempted rocket attacks in the Pakistani capital and elsewhere, police said on Saturday. Interior Minister Aftab Khan Sherpao announced the arrests Friday in connection with an October 4 attack in a park near President Gen. Pervez Musharraf's residence in Rawalpindi near Islamabad, and over the October 5 and October 7 discoveries of rockets near Parliament and the headquarters of Pakistan's main spy agency, Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). Sherpao did not identify the suspects or say when they were arrested, but said they had links with al-Qaida. Musharraf has outlawed several domestic Islamic militant groups, some believed linked with al-Qaida, since it threw its support behind Washington after the September 11, 2001, attacks in the United States.
