Maldives frees terror suspect

Maldivian national Iqbal Mohammed, whose arrest was billed by both Pakistan and Interpol as a major success in averting terror attack on the World Cup, has been released on a court order in Male.

Iqbal was arrested six hours after leaving Karachi for Male via Colombo on March 10.

He was wanted by Maldives in connection with a 2007 terror bombing. Though there was no official word either from Islamabad or Interpol, his release has confirmed India's doubts over the claim made by both Pakistan and Interpol.
