The man suspected of organising the June murder of 10 international mountaineers, including two Slovaks, was caught in the Gilgit-Baltistan region in the north of Pakistan.
The alleged murder at the foot of Nanga Parbat was initiated by Karibullah, nicknamed Hassan, who had earlier led a local armed group connected with Islamist Tehrike Taliban Pakistan (TTP) grouping, the TASR newswire quoted the RIA Novosti newswire on September 6. TTP is banned in Pakistan. Together with Karibullah, a suspected accomplice Mohammad Nabi was also detained.
Two of the victims killed by Taliban militants on June 21-22 in their base camp under Nanga Parbat in northern Pakistan were Slovak mountaineers and mountain rescuers Anton Dobeš and Peter Šperka. The militants are also alleged to have killed one American with dual Chinese citizenship, three Ukrainians, two Chinese nationals, one Lithuanian, one Nepali and a Pakistani guide, TASR wrote.
