Pakistan arrests alleged Mumbai attacks mastermind again

Pakistan arrests alleged Mumbai attacks mastermind againPakistani authorities Wednesday detained the alleged mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai attacks, a security official said, as the country faces increased pressure to crack down on militants operating on its soil. Firebrand cleric Hafiz Saeed — declared a global terrorist by the US and UN, and who has a $ 10 million US bounty on his head — was taken into custody following a raid by counter-terrorism forces in the eastern city of Gujranwala. “Hafiz Saeed was going to Gujranwala to apply for bail in another case when he was arrested,” said a security official with knowledge of the arrest, who requested anonymity.
