Bomb suspect arrested in Karachi
Police in Pakistan have arrested a suspected Islamic militant in connection with a car bombing in Karachi three years ago.

Fourteen people, including 11 French engineers, died in the explosion.

The suspect, Mufti Mohammad Sabir, was detained after an exchange of fire at a Karachi bus terminal, police say.

They said Mr Sabir was carrying explosives at the time of his arrest. Three other men have already been sentenced to death for the attack.

The police say they believe Mr Sabir fitted the bomb to the car used in the fatal attack, which took place outside the Sheraton Hotel in Karachi.
