Mumbai Bombings: Arrests Made

posted at 8:44 am on July 21, 2006 by Bryan

The news wires are lighting up with the arrests of four suspects in the Mumbai bombing. Two of them were in the Northern Indian province of Bihar, and one in Mumbai. The fourth was way down in Mombasa, Kenya. All were connected with the “Pakistani separatist” group Lashkar-e-Taiba.

Or as I’m going to start calling it, Al Qaeda in Pakistan. Remember that when Al-Qaeda muckety-muck Abu Zubaydah was arrested, he was cowering in a Lashkar-e-Taiba safehouse. And that fellow who was arrested in Georgia (as in Atlanta, not Tblisi) the other day? Three guesses whose training camps he had been frequenting–up in Canada.

Suddenly Mumbai seems much closer, doesn’t it?

Pakistani separatist group? Wasn’t that battle fought and won during the day of Gandhi? Pakistan IS a separate and fully sovereign nation last I heard. Am I missing something?

Kashmir is not a settled region, by far; there have been many wars/battles faught since the independence of India and creation of Pakistan, and the fight continues:
