Breaking: Pakistanis Arrest Alleged Shahzad Accomplice

The Washington Post reports:

The Pakistani government has arrested a suspect with connections to a Pakistani militant group who said he acted as an accomplice to the accused Times Square bomber, U.S. officials said.

 The suspect, whose arrest has not been previously disclosed, provided an “independent stream” of evidence that the Pakistani Taliban was behind the attack, including admitting helping Faisal Shahzad, the main suspect, travel into Pakistan’s tribal areas for bomb training.

Officials familiar with the probe cautioned that there have been inconsistencies in the two suspects’ accounts.
