Pakistan's Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has confirmed the arrest of two suspected members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, the militant group India believes was responsible for a series of attacks in Mumbai last month.

REUTERS - Pakistani Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani confirmed on Wednesday the arrest of two members of the Lashkar-e-Taiba jihadi group named by India as suspects in the conspiracy behind the attack on Mumbai last month.

 

Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and Zarrar Shah were being held for questioning, Gilani told journalists in Multan city, in the central province of Punjab.

 

"They have been detained for investigation," he said. Unnamed officials have said Lakhvi was arrested in a raid on a Lashkar camp in Pakistani Kashmir on Sunday, but there had been no confirmation from the government until now.
