I'm shocked, I tell you...
-- MUMBAI, India -- The only gunman captured by police after a string of attacks on Mumbai told authorities he belonged to the Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba, a senior police officer said Sunday.**********
The group has long been seen as a creation of the Pakistani intelligence service to help wage its clandestine war against India in disputed Kashmir.
Police arrested the lone surviving militant, Ajmal Qasab, and Mr. Maria said he confessed his links to Lashkar during interrogation. “Ajmal Qasab has received training in a L-e-T training camp in Pakistan,” he said.
“Our interrogation indicates that the terrorists had other places that they also intended to target.”
UPDATE: Second murdered Canadian identified
