13 students to be deported

Karachi, Oct. 25 (Reuters): Pakistan has decided to deport 13 Malaysian students, arrested last month in Karachi for suspected links to Islamic militants, a security official said today.

But five detained Indonesia students, including Gun Gun Rusman Gunawan, brother of suspected top al Qaida operative Riduan Islamuddin alias Hambali, would remain under investigation in Pakistan, said Brigadier Javed Iqbal Cheema, a senior interior ministry official.

The arrests, made in a series of raids in September on Islamic seminaries in Karachi, infuriated Pakistanís clergy and hardline Islamic parties.
