LAHORE, Sept 7: Officials of a sensitive agency raided some localities in the city on Saturday to track down members of a banned outfit after they arrested two suspected foreigners, said to be associated with al-Qaeda, from a Punjab University hostel on Friday night.

The Lahore police also rounded up several suspects during a search and sweep operation.

Sources claimed that suspects had come to Lahore for supervising suicide attacks and they were given refuge by a sister organization of a religious party.

Officials seized several cell phone SIMs and other material from the possession of the accused.

One of the arrested suspects was a commander who had supervised terrorist activities across the country from the tribal area in the past.
