Yasin Bhatkal: India Mujahideen 'interrogation going on'

Police in India have arrested Yasin Bhatkal, the alleged head of the Indian Mujahideen (IM) militant group, which has been blamed for a string of recent attacks, officials say.

The group is thought to be behind deadly blasts in the cities of Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Delhi.

Mr Bhatkal, who officials say is a co-founder of the home-grown group, is one of the most wanted men in the country.

Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde told reporters an "interrogation" was under way.
