Terrorist Claims Mumbai Locals Helped Attackers

The sole Pakistani terrorist arrested in connection with the attacks in Mumbai told Indian authorities that he received help from locals in India's financial capital, according to the Times of India. Azam Amir Kasab reportedly shared "names and addresses of at least five people from the city who helped the terror operation" that killed 195 people over three days of violence. The police commissioner confirmed: "We suspect there could be local assistants but it is subject to verification. It will be very premature to comment on this at this stage as our investigations is going on." Kasab also told police the terrorists "were sent with a specific mission of targeting Israelis to avenge atrocities on Palestinians."
