A Pakistani accused of organizing a 2009 bomb attack on a Peshawar market that killed more than 130 people, has been detained in Italy, police said Friday.Italian anti-terrorism detectives believe Siyar Khan was part of a jihadi network based in Italy which was plotting terror attacks on Rome and possibly the Vatican to be carried by suicide bombers imported from Pakistan.The suspect, who is legally resident in Italy, is accused of sheltering one of the would-be suicide bombers, who entered the country in March 2010 and is believed to be still at large.Only nine of the suspects were actually arrested in April with the others mostly thought to have fled to Pakistan before the raids.
