http://www.jewishjournal.com/world/article/indian_court_finds_mumbai_gunman_guilty_20100503

An Indian court found a Pakistani man guilty of murder and other offenses for his role in the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Ajmal Kasab also was found guilty Monday of conspiracy and waging war against India in a series of attacks that left 166 people dead, including six at the Mumbai Chabad house, which was targeted along with luxury hotels, a train station and a popular cafe. Kasab was the only surviving gunman among 10.

Kasab, who originally admitted to his role as part of a Pakistani Islamist organization before retracting his confession, faces a death sentence or life in prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday.

A temporary Chabad house is in operation in Mumbai during the reconstruction of the house that was destroyed in the November 2008 attack.
