Pakistan court suspends detention of Mumbai planner

The Associated Press

ISLAMABAD (AP) A Pakistani prosecutor says a court has suspended a detention order keeping the alleged planner of the Mumbai terror attacks in jail, possibly paving the way for his release.

Jahanagir Jadoon said the ruling came at a hearing Monday in the capital of Islamabad.

The development is the latest twist in the ongoing case of Zaki-ur-Rahman Lakhvi.

He is one of seven men on trial in Pakistan in connection with the 2008 attack in the Indian city of Mumbai that killed 166 people.

A Pakistani court on Dec. 18 granted him bail, saying there was not enough evidence to hold him.

The government immediately ordered his detention for 30 days, which Lakhvi then appealed.

Monday's hearing was to hear that appeal.
