leave a comment »

Police arrested four men in connection with last month’s suicide attack on a hotel that killed 54 people, authorities said Friday.

The four are suspected of “indirect involvement” in the blast at the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, police chief Ahmad Latif said. They are the first known arrests in the Sept. 20 attack.

The attack was a reminder of the gathering threat posed by Islamist militants in nuclear-armed Pakistan.

Latif said the men were arrested in different parts of Punjab province, but gave no more details. They were brought before an anti-terrorism court where a judge gave police permission to hold them for questioning for one week.
