Pakistan Arrests Army Officer for Terror Ties

Authorities identified the contact as Ilyas Kashmiri, a commander of the Lashkar-4-Taiba group, which claimed responsibility for the Mumbai attacks. The U.S. thought it had killed Kashmiri in a recent drone strike. Someone claiming to be Kashmiri recently gave an interview to a Pakistani newspaper, in which he said he supported al-Qaeda and that attacks such as the ones in Mumbai will be "nothing compared to what has already been planned."

Headley, according to prosecutors, posted a message on an internet site in October, stating, "I feel disposed towards violence for the offending parties" for "making fun of Islam."

According to authorities, other target code words include 'investments,' 'projects,' 'business' and 'action.'

Headley is set to appear in court again Dec. 4.
