Oct 11 (Reuters) - Pakistani commandos stormed an office building on Sunday and rescued 39 people held hostage by Islamist militants after a brazen attack on the headquarters of the army. The 22-hour-long drama ended with the capture of a hostage-taker who was wounded while blasting the explosives before his arrest. The military identified the arrested militant as Aqeel, alias Dr. Usman, and said he was the "ringleader".
Security officials said he was believed to be a member of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, an al Qaeda-linked grouped based in the central province of Punjab.
