Madarsas raided in Karachi, 25 arrested

Just hours before a national address by President Pervez Musharraf, in which he is likely to announce fresh initiatives against terrorist organisations, heavily armed police raided three religious schools and two mosques in the restive port city of Karachi and arrested at least 25 Muslim extremists.

The arrests, senior officials in Islamabad said, were a precaution against any violent reaction by extremist Islamic groups after Musharraf's speech.

Most of those arrested belonged to the extremist Sunni Muslim group Sipah-e-Sahaba and Shiite Muslim Tehrik-e-Jafria.
