ISLAMABAD – Relatives of three men detained by Pakistan for alleged links to the suspect in the attempted Times Square bombing say the men are innocent.
They said during a news conference Sunday they are concerned the men were mistakenly targeted because they are devout Muslims.
They demanded the government either officially charge the men or release them.
The three have been in custody at least two weeks. They are among at least six men who have been detained in Pakistan for alleged ties to Faisal Shahzad, a Pakistani-American arrested in the United States two days after the failed May 1 attack in New York.
