Pakistan: Anti-militant operations begin

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistan's military says operations against militants are under way following the Mumbai attacks.

A military statement released late Monday says the operations are "intelligence-led" and target banned militant organizations.

It says arrests have been made, but gives no more details.

It is not clear whether the operations detailed in the statement include a raid on Sunday that targeted a camp run by Lashkar-e-Taiba, the group blamed for plotting and carrying out last month's attacks on Mumbai.
