Pakistan arrests 8 suspected terrorists in probe into twin bombings

Police have detained eight alleged Islamic militants after a suicide attack on a navy college, the latest in a wave of bombings to rattle Pakistan after elections, an official said Wednesday. The men have been picked up "in an attempt to find any clue to identify the bombers or people involved in the attack," Aziz said. None of them was a suspect, he said. On Tuesday Police said two bombers rode on a motorcycle to the gate of the parking lot at the Pakistan Navy War College in the eastern city of Lahore. The passenger dismounted and destroyed the gate, allowing his accomplice to ride inside and unleash a much more powerful blast. Four were killed and 14 were wounded. All the victims were employees of the college.
