The Guardian has further developments on the Red Mosque story.
Security forces besieging a radical mosque in the Pakistani capital captured its top cleric Wednesday as he tried to sneak out of the complex in a woman's burqa, and more than 1,000 of his followers surrendered. ...
A security official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media, said authorities captured the mosque's top cleric, Maulana Abdul Aziz, after a female police officer tried to search his body, which was concealed by a full-length black burqa.
The officer began shouting ``This is not a woman,'' the official said, prompting male officers to seize him. ``The suspect later turned out to be the mosque's chief cleric,'' the official said. ... ``They have no options but to surrender,'' said Javed Iqbal Cheema, a government spokesman. ``The government is not into dialogue with these clerics.''
