Paks get al Qaeda linked leader

AP via Washington Post:

Pakistani security agents raided a home near the capital of Islamabad and arrested the head of an al-Qaida-linked militant group accused of killing hundreds of minority Shiites, a security official said Wednesday.

Asif Chotto, the reputed head of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, was captured with other suspects in Rawalpindi, a garrison city near Islamabad, the official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.


"He is a major catch. We were looking for him for the past three years," said the official, who also did not want to be named because he was not authorized to discuss cases with reporters.

"He (Chotto) is the person who trained a group of suicide bombers and attacked Shiites," the official said.

The bigotry of al Qaeda is not limited to non Muslims. It also includes Muslims who are not followers of the Salfist/Whabbi sects.
