Another Suspect Detained In Times Square Bomb Case

A Pakistani official says another man has been detained in connection with the main suspect in the Times Square attempted car bombing.

The latest suspect to be questioned is a Pakistani named Humbal Akhtar. The official requested anonymity because he works for Pakistani intelligence and is not allowed to comment on the record. He gave no other details about Akhtar.

The primary suspect, Pakistani-American Faisal Shahzad, is being held in the United States.

Intelligence officials have said around 11 people have been detained in the case in Pakistan.

Akhtar's wife, Rahila, confirmed Friday in a brief phone conversation that her husband disappeared a few days ago. She declined to give more details.
