Kerry says Pakistan 'sincere' in Mumbai crackdown

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) -- Sen. John Kerry says he believes that Pakistan is sincere in its efforts to crackdown on Islamic militants blamed for the Mumbai terrorist attack.

India is suspicious of Pakistan's clamp down on Lashkar-e-Taiba, the militant group New Delhi blames for last month's attack that killed more than 160 people. The group has been involved in Pakistan's long struggle with India over the divided Kashmir region.

Kerry, the next chairman of the U.S. Senate's powerful Foreign Relations Committee, has met with leaders in both countries in recent days.

He told reporters in Islamabad on Tuesday that Pakistan has arrested more suspects than it has announced publicly. He also says Pakistan's government appears determined to prosecute those implicated by evidence.
