Two militants say Pakistani troops have seized a camp used by the extremist group blamed in the Mumbai attacks. The militants say troops arrested more than 12 people during the raid Sunday close to the town of Muzaffarabad in the Pakistani part of the disputed Kashmir region.

They say there was a brief exchange of fire during the operation.

Pakistan authorities were not available for comment Monday.

The militants say the camp was used until 2004 by the banned Laskhar-e-Taiba to train recruits to fight Indian rule in its section of the Kashmir.

More recently, it was used by Lashkar's parent organization Jamaat-ud-Dawa for education and charity work, they say.
