India-Pakistan: June 25, 2002



Police are aggressively rounding up Sunni Islamic radicals. These radicals appear to be working with al Qaeda in carrying out bombings and suicide attacks. At least 60 of the "usual suspects" have been taken into custody. Most of the radicals have long operated openly, if only to recruit new members and raise money. Many of the radicals are local heroes in some Sunni neighborhoods.
