    Pakistani agents detain five Americans over possible terror links

    Pakistani intelligence agents are interrogating five detained Americans over possible links to extremists.

    U.S. officials believe the five are young men who went missing more than a week ago from their homes in the northern Virginia and Washington, D.C.

    Pakistan police say the five men were staying at a house in the eastern city of Sarghoda believed to be used by the Jaish-e-Mohammed militant group. Jaish has alleged links to al-Qaida and has traditionally focused on targets in India, Pakistan's longtime rival.

    Two police officials said Thursday the men were cooperating after first giving conflicting statements.

    They said investigators seized a laptop computer and extremist literature from the house.

    The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the subject's sensitivity.
