Pakistan Declares National Day Of Thanksgiving - 2003-12-26


Pakistan has declared a national day of thanksgiving after two suicide bombers failed in their attempt to kill the country's president. The bodies of the bombers have both been identified, and the authorities say they know who was behind them.

Government officials say they now have leads into the attack on President Pervez Musharraf's motorcade Thursday.

Interior Minister Faisal Saleh Hayat told the Pakistani Senate that investigators have identified the remains of the two bombers who blew themselves up in separate cars near the presidential convoy in the city of Rawalpindi.

Mr. Hayat says authorities also believe they know the group or groups responsible.

"At this juncture, I would only want to say that we are aware of the people, the nature of people, who are involved in this case," Mr. Hayat said.

While details of the investigation are being kept secret, local reports say militants from outside of Pakistan are believed to have been involved.
