ISLAMABAD, (AP) --

Pakistani police say they have foiled a terror plot in the capital, arresting two suspects and seizing several explosives-laden vests and ammunition from a militant hideout.

Senior police officer Bani Yamin says authorities detained the
two suspects Saturday as they drove through the Shahzad neighborhood of Islamabad.

He says the men had concealed more then a dozen rockets, 12 hand
grenades and vests packed with explosives in their car and at an Islamabad home.

Yamin did not give further details and only said officers were still investigating. It was not clear what the suspects may have been targeting.

Islamabad and many of Pakistan's other major cities have witnessed scores of suicide and bomb attacks, most blamed on Taliban militants.
