Pakistan has detained at least four people suspected of links with a Pakistani American arrested in the United States this month over a failed attempt to set off a car bomb in New York's Times Square.

"They have been picked up on suspicion that they knew Faisal Shahzad," a Pakistani security official said, referring to the man arrested in connection with the New York incident.

"We have not yet established whether they were involved in what he did," the official said, adding that four people had been picked up while another security official said five people had been detained.
