Lahore, Dec 21: Speaking on the lack of remorse in the five Americans arrested in Pakistan for alleged terror links, a senior police official revealed that one of them even asked the authorities to hang them so that they can turn into martyrs.
"They have no remorse about their plans to commit terror acts. Rather, they regret that they could not lay their lives while also killing some 'US imperialists'," Usman Anwar, the police chief of Sargodha district has been quoted as saying.
One of the arrested youth, Ramy Zamzam (22) reportedly told the police, "Since our plan to embrace 'shahadat' (martyrdom) could not materialise, we want to become martyrs in another way. Hang us."
The other four did not disagree with this, the official said.
Zamzam, Waqar Hussain Khan (22), Ahmed Abdullah Minni (20), Iman Hasan Yemer (17) and Omar Farooq (24) were arrested in Sargodha few weeks ago on charges of planning terror attacks in Pakistan as well as overseas.
