Pakistan on Monday blamed a banned extremist group for September's Marriott hotel suicide attack, which killed 53 people.

"Lashkar-e-Jhangi group was behind the suicide truck bombing," Interior Adviser to Prime Minister Rehman Malik told parliament.

Two suicide bombers rammed an explosive-laden dumper into the gate of Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, killing 53 people and injuring 266 others on Sept. 20.

Malik said that the explosive-laden dumper was brought from the city of Jhang in eastern Pakistan's Punjab province.

The two persons who facilitated the attacks have been arrested from the city of Toba Tek Singh in Punjab, Malik said.
