Islamabad: ‘Six bombers arrested during long march’
ISLAMABAD: Six would-be suicide bombers were arrested during the lawyers’ long march last week and law-enforcement agencies recovered 45 kilogrammes of explosives from them, Adviser to Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik said on Tuesday.
He told the National Assembly that the media would be informed of the incidents soon. Rehman also complained of misreporting by the media of a US drone attack in South Waziristan on June 14, demanding that the matter be investigated by the house committee concerned. The adviser said that the government had started satellite monitoring of Pakistan’s western borders from June 16 to allow authorities to monitor the situation from Islamabad. Rehman also noted that overall street crime in the country had decreased since the new government came into power.
