    LONDON: The serial blasts in Delhi sent shock waves across the Indian community in Britain and among the many Britons who have fond memories of the sights, sounds and smells of Paharganj, one of the affected areas. Britain was among the first to condemn the three Saturday blasts, with Foreign Secretary Jack Straw saying: "I utterly condemn the appalling attacks which appear to have been targeted at heavily populated areas to produce maximum carnage. "This is yet another example of terrorists' cynical and callous disregard for human life. On behalf of the British government, I would like to offer the...

    ALBANY, N.Y. - Two Muslim men caught up in an anti-terrorism sting operation pleaded innocent Friday as details emerged about 10 new charges against them. Yassin Aref and Mohammed Hossain were accused Thursday of attempting to provide support to Jaish-e-Mohammed, a Pakistan-based group listed by the federal government as a terrorist organization. Aref, who leads a mosque, also was charged with lying to federal officials. The pair were initially charged in August 2004 with conspiring to launder money and promoting terrorism. They now face a total of 30 charges. Entered as new evidence against Aref were entries in his personal...

    Two New York mosque leaders charged with conspiring to support terrorists. Amazing how they could have risen to the leadership of a Muslim religious center while so thoroughly misunderstanding Islam. Funny thing: the same thing happened in Lodi, California. And all over the world, as we document here every day, we see Islamic clerics -- people who have dedicated their lives to studying and living out the religion -- at the forefront of terrorist movements. And yet so many people refuse to see what is right in front of their faces: maybe they aren't misunderstanding Islam at all. Aref and...

    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) - The suicide bombers who tried to kill Pakistan's leader last week belonged to an outlawed militant group fighting Indian rule in Kashmir, three intelligence officials told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The bombers were part of Jaish-e-Mohammed, a group that President Gen. Pervez Musharraf banned in 2002 as part of a drive to purge Pakistan of terrorism, said the officials, who are all intimately involved in the investigation and who spoke on condition of anonymity. One of the attackers was from Pakistan's portion of Kashmir, a disputed Himalayan region that is divided between Pakistan and India....

    NEW DELHI, India - Weekend anti-terrorist crackdowns by security forces prevented a "spectacular" attack by a Pakistan-based militant group in India's capital, police said Sunday.

Ghazi Baba was suspected of masterminding a December 2001 attack on India's Parliament that brought nuclear-armed rivals India...

    ISLAMABAD: Investigators in Pakistan suspect that members of the Jaish-e-Mohammed group were involved in recent attacks against Christians, highly placed police and interior ministry officials said Sunday.

Pervez Musharraf in January, were behind the grenade attack on worshippers at a church on the grounds of a Presbyterian hospital...

    WANA, Pakistan – In Pakistan's wild country along the Afghan border, al-Qaeda fugitives and homegrown Islamic extremists are teaming up to confront Pakistan's government and its U.S. allies. Pakistanis and Afghans familiar with extremist organizations say their aim is to punish President Pervez Musharraf for abandoning the Afghan Taliban and banning several militant groups in Pakistan in connection with the U.S.-led war on terrorism. Police fear the kidnapping and slaying of Wall Street Journal correspondent Daniel Pearl and the March 17 grenade attack on an Islamabad church attended by foreigners may be examples of what the extremists have in store....
