Following Condoleezza Rice’s appearance on CNN in which she stated unequivocally that “there was no doubt the Mumbai attacks were planned in Pakistan,” Pakistani security forces have raided one camp run by the Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist gang.

Otherwise known as: keeping up appearances.

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistani security forces on Sunday raided a camp used by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), two sources said, in a strike against the militant group blamed by India for last month’s deadly attacks on Mumbai.

Local man Nisar Ali told Reuters the operation began in the afternoon in Shawai on the outskirts of Muzaffarabad, the capital of the Pakistani side of disputed Kashmir region.

“I don’t know details as the entire area was sealed off, but I heard two loud blasts in the evening after a military helicopter landed there,” Ali said.

An official with the Jamaat-ud-Dawa charity, which is linked to LeT, said security forces had taken over the camp.
