    Zimbabwe arrests two Pakistani suspects
    Fri Jun 25, 2010 6:53pm GMT
    HARARE June 25 (Reuters) - Zimbabwe police said on Friday they had detained two Pakistani men heading to South Africa, one of them under an international arrest warrant, which state media said was for terrorism.

    South Africa is hosting the World Cup and experts had said that terrorism could not be ruled out because of the huge attention that even a small attack would get during the June 11-July 11 tournament.

    "We have two Pakistani men in our custody and through Interpol we have established that there is a warrant for one of them," police spokesman Wayne Bvudzijena told Reuters.

    Asked if one of the men was a terrorism suspect, Bvudzijena said: "I wouldn't say that at the moment, it is too early, we are still conducting our investigations."

    The two were detained at the Beitbridge border post and the state-owned Herald newspaper reported that one of the unnamed men was suspected of terrorism but that there were no details on which country wanted him.

    The paper said the two flew from Saudi Arabia to Tanzania where they fraudulently acquired Kenyan passports before travelling to Zimbabwe by road last weekend.

    The Herald quoted unnamed security officials as saying the wanted terrorism suspect was based in the Chilean capital Santiago.
