ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) - Pakistani intelligence officials helped British security agencies crack a terrorist plot to blow up U.S.-bound aircraft and have arrested two or three suspects, officials said Thursday.

"Pakistan played a very important role in uncovering and breaking this international terrorist network," Foreign Ministry spokesman Tasnim Aslam said.

"Cooperation in this particular case was spread over a period of time. There were some arrests in Pakistan which were coordinated with arrests in the U.K.," she said.

She declined to give details about the arrests, including the number of suspects, their identities or when they were arrested.

1. I heard that earlier today
but not at all this evening.
I guess since bush* didn't give Pakistan credit in his little runway press conference, it didn't really happen.
Hey, aren't these the people we want to target for security screening?

2. I doubt that Pakistan figures into this thing other than to lend it
an air of international credibility.
