Seven al Qaeda members arrested in Balochistan

QUETTA: The Balochistan government claimed on Saturday to have nabbed seven al Qaeda members, including a commander, from Nushki.

According to a statement, the men were arrested during a raid carried out by intelligence agencies. A huge cache of arms and ammunition, hate literature, laptops, wireless communication devices and currency were also seized from them.

During the interrogation, the busted commander confessed to having been trained in Afghanistan after joining al Qaeda in 2012-13. He said he travelled to Syria as well to participate in militant activities and later returned to Pakistan where he worked for al Qaeda and Islamic State.
