Pakistani security agents detained on Thursday four foreigners suspected of belonging to Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaida network, officials said.
The suspects -- an Afghan, a Russian Muslim, a Turk and a Spanish national of Middle Eastern origin -- were detained in the northwestern city of Peshawar, which is not far from the border with Afghanistan.
“They have been picked up for suspicion of links with al-Qaida,” said an intelligence official, who did not want to be named.
The official said the men were arrested at the house of the Afghan, who he identified as Abdul Aziz from Kunduz province. He did not give names of the other three.
He said two computers, passports and mobile phones were seized during the raid.
Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed told state-run Pakistan Television that none of those arrested was on a list of most-wanted terrorists.
