Plans for new terror attacks against Britain and the United States have been found on a computer seized during the arrest of a Pakistani al-Qaida suspect wanted for the 1998 twin US embassy bombings in east Africa.

The plans were found by intelligence agents in e-mails on the computer of Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, a Tanzanian arrested on July 25 after a 12-hour gun battle in the eastern Pakistani city of Gujrat, a senior government minister said in Islamabad.

The minister said authorities had also arrested another top al-Qaida suspect believed to be a computer and communications expert in a separate raid. He would not give the man's name.
