Islamabad, May 7:

Authorities have tightened security at foreign missions across Pakistan, officials said today, following the arrest of at least eight terror suspects, including a senior Al-Qaeda figure wanted for two assassination attempts against President Gen. Pervez Musharraf.

The government said yesterday its interrogation of purported Al-Qaeda number 3, Abu Farraj al-Libbi, was progressing well.

However, Interior Minister Aftab Khan Sherpao denied a report that the authorities had foiled yet another plot by Islamic militants on Musharraf’s life.
