Death for Mumbai attacks gunman
Mumbai, May 6, 2010
An Indian court on Thursday sentenced to death a Pakistani man over the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people and raised tensions between the nuclear-armed neighbouring rivals.
The death penalty, which in India is carried out by hanging, must be confirmed by a higher court.
Mohammad Ajmal Kasab was the only one captured alive following the three-day rampage by 10 gunmen in November 2008 which killed people at key Mumbai landmarks, including two luxury hotels, the main train station and a Jewish centre.
The Mumbai court on Monday had found Kasab guilty on more than 80 charges, including murder and waging war on India. - Reuters
