Pak detains 15 foreigners

Karachi, Sept. 20 (Reuters): Pakistani security officials detained 15 southeast Asian Islamic students in Karachi today, saying they had ties with Muslim militants and were involved in activities damaging to Pakistan’s interests.

Interrogators wanted to determine if the suspects had links with Osama bin Laden’s al Qaida network and if they were plotting attacks, an intelligence official said. “Thirteen of the suspects are Malaysian and two are Indonesian,” an official said.
