Good News: More Arrests in Pakstan in Connection with Shahzad

ISLAMABAD—Pakistani authorities have arrested four people in connection with the failed Times Square bomb plot, including an executive at a catering company that its owner said often served meals for staff of the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad.

A U.S. official in Washington said Friday that there were indications terrorists might have been planning to use the company as cover for an attack in Pakistan.

The arrests begin to fill in the picture of Times Square suspect Faisal Shahzad’s contacts in Pakistan, where he spent several months starting last year and, according to U.S. investigators, received training from local militants.
