Security firm's offices raided

September 20, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Police raided a Pakistani security firm that helps protect the U.S. Embassy, seizing 70 allegedly unlicensed weapons and arresting two people.

The raid on two offices of the Inter-Risk company is especially sensitive because of recent rumors and news reports that U.S. Embassy expansion plans in Pakistan include hiring the controversial security firm formerly known as Blackwater.

The U.S. says there is no truth in the reports.
