Pakistan police say 3 Indian agents arrested
Pakistani police said on Thursday they had arrested three suspected Indian agents planning to attack prominent people and installations, including offices of a militant group blamed for November's attacks in Mumbai.

The men, all Pakistani, were arrested on Thursday in a village close to the Indian border in eastern Pakistan.

"They had plans to destroy important buildings and to kill important personalities," Pervez Rathore, police chief of the eastern city of Lahore, told reporters.

He said the men also planned to attack offices linked to the Lashkar-e-Taiba group as well as important religious personalities.

He did not elaborate.

Rathore said the men were trained in bomb-making in New Delhi by agents of India's Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) security agency before being sent to Pakistan.

Pakistani Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani told Reuters on Wednesday that Pakistan would release details of its investigation into the attack "very soon".
