    Bangladesh police arrest three Pakistani suspects

    DHAKA: Bangladeshi police said Friday they have arrested three Pakistani men who were suspected of plotting to attack US and Indian targets in the capital Dhaka.

    Police spokesman Shyamol Kumar Mukharjee told AFP the men were believed to be members of the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba group blamed for last year's attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai.

    'The latest arrests in Dhaka follow those last week of three other (Bangladeshi) men in the southeastern city of Chittagong who were planning to attack US targets,' he said.

    A senior police officer, speaking on condition of anonymity, said authorities believed the men arrested in Dhaka were planning attacks on US and Indian interests in the Bangladeshi capital.

    Police said they made the Chittagong arrests based on information from two men detained last month in Chicago.

    US authorities have charged those suspects, David Coleman Headley and Pakistan-born Tahawwur Hussain Rana, with plotting attacks, including on a Danish newspaper that published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in 2005.

    Headley, 49, a US citizen who changed his name from Daood Gilani in 2006, was arrested by the FBI on October 3 at Chicago's O'Hare airport before boarding a flight to Philadelphia en route to Pakistan.
