A sophisticated ambush by "trained terrorists" against the Sri Lankan cricket team here Tuesday bore the hallmarks of the tactics used in the Mumbai attacks, a senior Pakistan official said. "The attack resembles the Mumbai attacks," Khaled Farooq, chief of police in Punjab province, told reporters in Lahore. "That was also a commando action and this is also a commando operation in which our five officers embraced martyrdom," Farooq said when asked how the attack resembled Mumbai, where gunmen killed 165 people last November. "They were trained terrorists and they attacked in a planned manner.... The attackers looked like Pashtuns," said Farooq, hinting that those behind the assault may have links to Pakistan's northwest tribal areas. Hundreds of Taliban and Al-Qaeda fighters are hunkered down in northwest Pakistan, just across the border from Afghanistan, where they have been fighting against Pakistani security forces.
