Pakistan police arrest gang accused in bombings

By Riaz Khan, Associated Press Writer

PESHAWAR, Pakistan – Police commandos acting on a tip killed one militant and arrested five others Sunday in a raid against a bombing cell accused in recent attacks around the northwest Pakistani city of Peshawar, authorities said…

Police said the commandos encountered fierce resistance when they stormed the compound in the village of Kaka Khel near Peshawar, the largest city in the area and the main gateway to the Afghan border region where many al-Qaida and Taliban insurgents are based…

Three suicide jackets as well as a number of bombs, grenades, rocket-propelled grenades and other weapons were seized from the compound, regional police Chief Liaquat Ali Khan said.

He said one suspect was killed and five others arrested following a gunbattle that lasted more than two hours. A search operation for more militants continued in the area, some 30 miles (50 kilometers) east of Peshawar.

The detained are suspected of involvement in recent bombings and other attacks not only in Peshawar but in Islamabad and its sister city of Rawalpindi, Khan said, declining to be more specific…

Associated Press writers Zarar Khan and Anwarullah Khan contributed to this report from Islamabad.

Let’s hope these ‘”police commando” had a search warrant. And that they read these suspects their Miranda rights.

By the way, ‘Khan’ seems to be a popular name in the region.

    What is with all these militants surrendering?
    1 killed and 5 surrender

    I thought the credo for these “R” tards was “Die for the cause and collect 72 virgins.”

    Must have missed that page in the jihadist rule book.

    Funny how not even the land of strict Shariah law (think multiple amputations as a punishment for burglary) can stop the other members of the religion of peace from creating atrocities while screaming Allah Akbar.

    Kill on site is the way to go.
    Unfortunately, K.S.M. will be given a softball civilian trial not far from where I live. Thanks Dems!
