    The Pakistan Navy has laid the responsibility of the PNS Mehran attack on the Pakistan Air Force, a private TV channel reported.
    In a press briefing on Monday, the Navy officials said the militants entered the PNS Mehran from the area controlled by the PAF and it was the PAF’s responsibility to guard the area. They said the real target of the militants were two PC-3 Orion aircrafts parked at the base. They said 11 Chinese and six US citizens were present at the base but all of them were evacuated in a bullet-proof vehicle.
    Last week, the PNS Base Mehran was attacked by terrorists who battled with security men for almost 18 hours. Four out of six terrorists who had set on fire an Orion P-3 plane were gunned down while the other two managed to flee from the scene. At leas 10 security men embraced martyrdom in the incident, officials confirmed.
    Agencies add: Pakistani Intelligence agencies arrested three persons including a former SSG commando Kamran Malik along with his brother in connection with PNS Mehran attack from Gulberg area, Lahore, on Monday.
    According to sources, intelligences agencies raided the Kamran’s house wherein he, his brother Zaman Malik and his friend were arrested. They were shifted to some undisclosed place for interrogation.
    The sources said the former SSG commando was trailed under court martial on the charges of torture and misbehaviour with his officer due to which he was dismissed from the service.
    The accused commando’s father Sadaruddin told the media persons that some people in a tinted-glass car came to their house four days ago and took away his two sons.
    He said he had informed the SSP and the SHO of the concerned police station who had assured him the recovery of his sons. But even after four days he had not been informed about his sons’ whereabouts, he complained.

    You guys got it all wrong. These radars were actually being used to receive Star Plus.

    "For Sale: Obsolete Pakistan army radar; can't detect US 'copters but can receive Star Plus; only 999 rupees."

    Islamabad: Media reports in Pakistan claim that the body of Saleem Shahzad, a journalist who was missing since Sunday, has been found. Reports also suggest that his body, found by his car at Sarai Alamgir near Jhelum, had torture marks.

    Earlier in the day, Pakistan's Daily Times quoted the Human Rights Watch as saying Shahzad is in custody of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

    Shahzad, who is the Pakistan bureau chief of Asia Times Online, went missing days after authoring an article in which he contended that Al Qaeda attacked a naval airbase in Karachi after failed talks with the navy to release some arrested persons.

    He had left his house in Islamabad to participate in a television programme on Sunday but did not reach the TV station.
