VEHARI. July 23. Punjab Police in eastern part of province in Vehari district have arrested four men in connection with an attack on St. Dominic church Bahawalpur last year and massacred 17 Christian's worshipers.

The men were captured in the town of Vehari in Punjab province on Monday night and belonged to banned Islamic militant group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Iftikhar Ahmed, deputy inspector general of the provincial police, said. He said three men wanted for the October 28 attack on St Dominic's Church in the city of Bahawalpur were still on the run, and another was killed in an encounter with police in March. "We have been after this group of terrorists for quite some time," he said. "We had a fair idea who these people were." The officer said he expected the men would be charged within 14 days. He said they were suspected of involvement in other crimes.
