    Pakistan's army spokesman says a senior officer serving at army headquarters has been detained for suspected links with a banned militant group.

    Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas said Tuesday that Brig. Ali Khan is being questioned by army authorities over the links. He said Khan was detained recently but did not provide an exact date or specify the banned militant group involved.

    The detention follows reports by U.S. officials that Pakistan detained five Pakistanis, including an army major, for helping the CIA carry out the American commando raid that killed Osama bin Laden last month. The Pakistani army denied an army major was arrested.

    I don't think Pakistan prisons will hold enough if they started to detain officers who has links with the extremist group... :D
