International The News (aka Jang) is reporting that five have been arrested for the failed assassination on President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan that occurred during the Lal Masjid stand-off. Some are members of “outlawed groups.” Which means Pakistani terror organizations, don’t get your hopes up that he has Ayman al Zawahiri or something.
The attempt at the President came as his plane was on takeoff for a flood relief review mission to Balochistan. Large-caliber mounted machine guns were used for certain, and there were also reports of RPG”s or missiles as well. After the attempt one of the assailants called Abdul Rahid Ghazi inside the Red Mosque, and told him he did it in support.
