Two Pakistani officials say an alleged mastermind of last month's deadly attacks in Mumbai, India, is in custody.

The officials say Pakistan's security forces raided an extremists' camp in Kashmir yesterday and arrested Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi (zah-KEE' oor rah-MAHN' lahk-VEE'). He is among at least 12 people detained.

The camp is run by a banned militant group called Laskhar-e-Taiba (LASH'-kar-ee-TOY'-buh). That group is blamed for terrorism in Chechnya, Bosnia and Southeast Asia.

Indian officials say the sole Mumbai attacker captured alive has told them that Lakhvi recruited him for the mission and that Lakhvi and another militant were its masterminds.
