Pakistan identifies 20 more Mumbai suspects



ISLAMABAD // Pakistani security agencies have identified 20 more people suspected of involvement in the 2008 attack on India's commercial capital Mumbai which killed 166 people, a Pakistani newspaper reported today.

Pakistan has acknowledged that the attack was plotted and partly launched from its soil, and has put on trial seven suspects linked to the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant group, which was blamed for the attacks.

But India says it is not satisfied with the pace of the Pakistani investigation and has demanded more people be put on trial for the attacks including the founder of the LeT, Hafiz Mohammad Saeed.

The Express Tribune in its online edition said the counter-terrorism wing of a Pakistani federal agency has identified the 20 suspects, mostly LeT affiliates.

"The new suspects had allegedly provided logistical and monetary support for the Mumbai attack," the newspaper said quoting a "classified report", two years after the attack.

It did not say why the authorities had acted now, and Pakistani officials were not immediately available for comment.
