Pakistan: 124 arrested in post-Mumbai crackdown

A Pakistani official says 124 people have been arrested in a crackdown on groups allegedly linked to the attacks in Mumbai.
However, Interior Ministry chief Rehman Malik reiterated Thursday that Pakistan still needs more information from India to allow it to prosecute suspects in court.
India has said November attack on its commercial center that killed 164 people was plotted in Pakistan.
Malik dodged a question on whether Pakistan was admitting militants from its soil staged the attack, saying evidence was still needed.
He said the crackdown was in response to the U.N.'s accusation that a Pakistani charity was a front for an outlawed militant group allegedly linked to the attacks.
