Islamabad: Pakistani officials have
detained an 11th suspect in connection with the probe into the
failed car bomb attack in New York by Pakistani-American
Faisal Shahzad, a media report said today.

The latest suspect to be detained is a man named Qamar
Ejaz, a Pakistani intelligence source told CNN.
Ejaz`s brother, Adnan Ejaz, is a former Pakistan Army
major who is also in custody.

CNN reported it was not clear how Ejaz was connected
to Shahzad, the son of a former Pakistan Air Force officer.

Shahzad was arrested while trying to fly out of New
York on May 3, two days after he left a vehicle filled with
explosive materials in New York`s Times Square.

The car bomb failed to explode.

According to reports, among those detained so far are
an employee of the telecom firm Telenor, the son of the owner
of one of Islamabad`s largest catering services and the owner
of a computer firm who allegedly uploaded a video of Pakistani
Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud on the Internet.

There has been no official word on these detentions.
