Pakistan arrests head of group linked to Mumbai killings

The arrest of Hafiz Muhammad Saeed on Thursday and the closing of the offices of his organization, Jamaat ud Dawa, was Pakistan's reaction to a United Nations Security Council decision late Wednesday to put the group and Saeed on its terrorist watch list. The move risks a violent backlash, but may help to ease the enormous international pressure on Islamabad to clamp down.
