Pakistani Sentenced To Death For Mumbai Terrorist Attacks

An Indian court today sentenced to death a Pakistani man over the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks that left more than 160 people dead.

Mohammad Ajmal Kasab was the only attacker captured alive following the three-day seige by 10 gunmen at key Mumbai landmarks, including two luxury hotels, the main train station, and a Jewish center.

The court in Mumbai earlier had found Kasab guilty on more than 80 charges, including murder and waging war against India.

In India, the death penalty is carried out by hanging.

The decision must be confirmed by a higher court before it is implemented.
