Pakistan security forces have arrested 11 alleged militants following the death of the al-Qaeda suspect Amjad Farooqi on Sunday. Two suspected
accomplices, Abdur Rehman and Aqub Farooqi, have also been detained “a security official said that three of the 11 suspected militants arrested were
brothers from Sukkur and belonged to the outlawed Jaish-e-Mohammad group".

Interrogators said the accomplices told them Amjad Farooqi was responsible for the assassination attempt on prime minister designate Shaukat Aziz in
July. Mr Aziz escaped unhurt but nine people died.
Pakistani intelligence also suspected Amjad Farooqi of involvement in two assassination attempts on President Musharraf last December and in the
killing of US journalist Daniel Pearl.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
"The intelligence agencies have noticed a significant movement out of Pakistan of Islamic militants of Middle Eastern origin. Arab militants have
simply found Iraq a more fertile ground, where they can melt away easily and have Americans and other Westerners as easy targets officials
To some extent I agree with that quote from above But I think its the little less known Militants that have moved out and gone into Iraq to " melt
away". Since Pakistan have made some key al-Qaeda arrests from 2002 -04 if they can keep this up this will break some of the al-Qaeda/militant
structure for sure.
