Islamabad, Pakistan (AP) Pakistan is continuing its crackdown on a militant group suspected in the Mumbai terror attacks. The government says 20 more people have been arrested, but reiterates none of its citizens will be handed over to India.

A senior Pakistani security official says in the last 24 hours, troops have raided at least five more offices of a militant group based in Pakistan's portion of the disputed region of Kashmir.

Security forces have been acting on information picked up from the alleged mastermind of the Mumbai attacks, who was picked up in the same region Sunday. None of the latest 20 people detained are said to be among those named by India in connection with the Mumbai carnage.

Pakistan's Foreign Minister says they'll all be tried, and if convicted, also punished in Pakistan.
