Police say six men have been charged in a terror plot foiled when authorities seized three vehicles carrying more than 2,200 pounds of explosives near Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad.
Thursday’s seizure and detention of the Pakistani suspects came days after a blast near the Danish Embassy in Islamabad killed at least six.
Rana Mohammad Shahid, head of the Crimes Investigation Agency in Rawalpindi, a city near Islamabad where the plot was intercepted, said today the suspects were charged with terrorism and conspiracy.
He said they were taken to an anti-terrorism court after being formally arrested on Saturday.
Officials said the suspects allegedly planned to attack “important installations” in Pakistan.
