Police: Explosives seized near Pakistan capital
Police say they have seized two vehicles carrying about 2,200 pounds of explosives, foiling a possible terror plot near Pakistan's capital, reported AP.
Senior police officer Rao Mohammed Iqbal said several suspects were arrested in the operation late Thursday in the garrison city of Rawalpindi.
Two security officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to media, said Friday at least three men were arrested, suspected of wanting to target "sensitive installations."
Rawalpindi houses the headquarters of Pakistan's army and the residence of President Pervez Musharraf.
A suicide car bombing outside the Danish Embassy in Islamabad this week killed six people.
