Breaking: Arrests in Karachi, Pakistan in Connection With Times Square Bomb Plot

Several people have been arrested in Pakistan, in connection with the attempted Times Square bombing, security sources have said.

We have picked up a few family members" related to Faisal Shahzad, the chief suspect in the failed attack, a security official in Karachi said.

Shahzad, an American man of Pakistani descent, is being held after he was stopped while trying to flee the country, according to officials.

The 30-year-old was attempting to board a plane bound for Dubai at John F Kennedy International Airport in New York, authorities said.

But the law enforcement source said Shahzad denied any ties to radical groups in Pakistan and said he received no help to plan the attack.

...Shahzad recently visited Pakistan for about five months, returning to the US in February, according to the source.
"Based on our collective experience it's hard to really believe that this is something someone would do on their own," the source said.
"This investigation is ongoing, as are our attempts to gather useful intelligence, and we continue to pursue a number of leads," he said.He said: "As we move forward, we will focus on not just holding those responsible for it accountable, but also on obtaining any intelligence about terrorist organisations overseas."

A Pakistani-based Taliban group claimed credit for the attack in an internet video on Sunday, but Police Commissioner Ray Kelly has since said police had no evidence to support the claim.
