Pakistan Detains Dozens of Suspected Islamist Militants
Yesterday Pakistani authorities announced they’d arrested 44 members of banned groups — including relatives of the founder of Jaish-e-Mohammad, which was behind a recent suicide bombing in Indian-controlled Kashmir that left dozens dead. That attack prompted New Delhi to accuse Islamabad of harboring terrorists, sparking fresh tensions between the two nuclear powers.
Will this soothe India’s concerns? Analysts say the operation seemed more symbolic than meaningful, especially in the absence of a broader crackdown on Islamist groups.
