Mumbai ’08 Attack ‘Planner’ Arrested

Police in India have arrested a man they say is responsible for planning the brutal 2008 attacks that left 165 dead in Mumbai. Abu Hamza, who was allegedly the handler for the 10 gunmen who mounted the attacks in Mumbai, was turned over to police in Delhi, officials said Monday. The 30-year-old Hamza, also known as Syed Zabiuddin, was arrested Thursday while returning from a trip to the Middle East. He allegedly coordinated the movements of the gunmen in Mumbai by cellphone as they tore through the city, attacking hotels, a Jewish cultural center, and a train station, among other targets.
