Indian police have apprehended a man they believe to have guided the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

Syed Zabiuddin Ansari, who allegedly guided the terrorists move by move as they carried out the attacks, was discovered after he opened a Facebook account with his own name, according to The Associated Press. He was living in Saudi Arabia on a Pakistani passport, raising funds and recruiting for the Islamist terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba.

Among the 166 people who died in the attacks were six Jews killed at the Chabad center, including Rabbi Gavriel and Rivkah Holtzberg, who ran the center. Their son, then nearly 2 years old, was saved.
