Pak intelligence warns of 'major terror attack' on US mission

world Updated: May 26, 2010 13:20 IST

Pakistani intelligence agencies have warned that a banned organisation might carry out a suicide attack on the US embassy with an explosives-laden vehicle.

Two stolen vehicles, one belonging to an army officer and another owned by the Pakistan Navy, could be used in the potential attack against the US embassy, Urdu daily Aaj Kal quoted unnamed sources as saying.

A black Toyota Corolla belonging to Brig Qaseer Tareen was stolen from Lahore, while a Suzuki Bolan owned by the Pakistan Navy was stolen from Rawalpindi.

The sources said these two vehicles could be used by a banned outfit for carrying out a "major terror attack."

A group of heavily armed Taliban militants attempted to the US consulate in Peshawar on April 5. They killed at least three persons before they were gunned down by security forces or blew themselves up.
