Two Pakistanis Held in Zimbabwe, Possible Mumbai Tie


Zimbabwe has arrested two Pakistani men who were heading to South Africa, one of them under an international arrest warrant that state media says is for terrorism.

The Zimbabwe Herald reports Imran Muhammad is wanted in Pakistan for suspected involvement in the 2008 Mumbai attacks that left 166 people dead.

Muhammad was arrested along with Chaudry Parvez Ahmed for using fake Kenyan passports to try to enter South Africa. Police made the announcement Saturday, though the two have been detained since June 20 when they were stopped at the Beitbridge border post.

Zimbabwe and South Africa have tightened border patrols since the start of the World Cup that kicked off in Johannesburg June 11 and will end next month.

Some information for this report was provided by AP, AFP and Reuters.
