David Headley alleges Pakistan role in Mumbai attacks

A man(American) who scouted sites for the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks has testified in a Chicago trial that the Pakistani intelligence service had links to the group that carried out the attacks.

More than 160 people were killed in November 2008 when a group of 10 men stormed a train station, hotels and cafes and a Jewish centre, shooting and throwing bombs.At the opening on Monday of Mr Rana's trial, Headley testified that Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) and militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) coordinated with each other.

The ISI provided military and moral support to the group, he said.
He said a Pakistani agent paid him $25,000 (15,500) for the operation. Headley has separately said he was trained by LeT.

He scouted the locations for the Mumbai Attack, especially the TAJ Hotel and the Nahriman Jewish center. Attacks which killed 160 people. Pakistan had initially claimed no connection to this attack, but According to Headly this operation was planned and executed by the ISI using the LET( laskhar E Taiba) Terrorist group..whose leader still lives in Pakistan.
