FBI to Probe Headley's Pakistan Connections

The US Embassy says the FBI is sending a team to Pakistan as part of an investigation into a Chicago terror suspect.

Embassy spokesman Rick Snelsire said Tuesday that the agents will brief Pakistani security officials about the probe into an alleged plot against Denmark and India.

David Coleman Headley, an American of Pakistani descent, was arrested in Chicago in October. US charges filed against him allege he conspired with Pakistan-based militant leaders and got help from a retired Pakistani army officer.

Snelsire says American investigators 'have been consulting closely with Pakistani authorities on this case and are working with them on following up on leads related to Headley's activities and connections in Pakistan.' -AP
