Posted on Dec 9, 2008
Indian officials have identified the nine suspected gunmen in the recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai—their names, as well as photos of eight out of nine of them, were released Tuesday. All nine were reported to be from Pakistan.
Photographs of eight of the men were released - the body of the ninth was said to have been too badly burned.
Police said all were from Pakistan. They did not say how this was known but one gunman, named as Azam Amir Qasab, survived and has been interrogated.
The attacks began on 26 November and left at least 170 people dead.
India has blamed Pakistani-based militants Lashkar-e-Taiba for the attacks.
