5 Americans were in Pakistan for jihad, officials say

The five young American men detained in Pakistan were seeking jihad, or holy war, and were planning a big attack when arrested, local authorities in central Punjab charged Thursday. The chief of police in the town of Sargodha said that the five were seeking a link to an ultra-radical jihad group, possibly al Qaida.
