NEW DELHI—India's home minister says police have arrested two men connected to the terror group blamed for the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people.

Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram told reporters Wednesday the men belonged to a cell sponsored by Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba.

He gave few other details. Press Trust of India quoted senior Delhi police official P.N. Agarwal as saying the men were carrying explosive material.

The Indian capital has seen a spate of terror attacks in the last few years. In early February an explosion seriously wounded an Israeli diplomat, and 11 people were killed when a bomb went off outside a courthouse in September.
