      US intelligence agencies have established a network in
      Pakistan through a cellular services provider to
      capture members of the Al Qaeda and other terrorists,
      Online news agency reports.

      From now on, a satellite system will capture data,
      conversations and recorded messages conducted on
      mobile phones linked through the Mobilink network and
      transmit these to US security and intelligence
      agencies.

      The new system has been devised in collaboration with
      the sponsors of Mobilink.

      Special chips will also be used in mobile phones for
      intelligence purposes. Those subscribers who are on
      the US list of suspects have already been directed to
      get their existing cell chips changed.

      Sources said that US agencies have established their
      own networks to capture terrorists in Pakistan and are
      using a variety of means for this.

      One method is to monitor the transmission of messages
      from wireless and other equipment. The US aerially
      monitors border areas in Pakistan. Also, the telephone
      lines of suspected terrorists are reportedly tapped.

      Mobilink has reportedly been giving huge financial
      assistance to implement the changes. The US is keen to
      expand the mobile phone intelligence network.
