Five missing N. Va. men arrested in Pakistan
Five Muslim men, reportedly missing Northern Virginia residents, have been arrested in Pakistan and are being held by Pakistani authorities, the FBI and a Muslim group said Wednesday. More details available here.
Pakistani media reports said the young men were taken into custody at the home of an activist linked to Jaish-i-Muhammad, a jihadist group that was implicated in the December 2001 attack on the Indian Parliament in New Delhi and has been branded a terrorist organization by the United States. Those reports could not be immediately confirmed.
