Times Square suspect has Pakistani residency

Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) – The Pakistani-American suspect in the Times Square bombing attempt has a Karachi identification card, a document that shows Pakistani residency, and the suspect's family is from northwestern Pakistan, Interior Minister Rehman Malik told CNN.

Malik was notified about the arrest of Faisal Shahzad on Tuesday morning by the U.S. ambassador to Pakistan and said his government will cooperate with the United States government in the investigation.

The northwestern Pakistan region is a stronghold of militants and jihadis who have been targeted by U.S. drone strikes.
