Pakistan Admits Mumbai Attacks Planned On Their Soil

For the first time Pakistan admitted that the Mumbai terror attacks were planned inside their country.

Pakistan’s Interior Ministry Adviser Rehman Malik told a press conference that “some part of the conspiracy has taken place in Pakistan,” adding that eight people had been arrested – including a few named by India as masterminds.

But he also unveiled a slew of foreign links pointing to a network of “non-state actors” providing logistical support from around the globe. These include:

  • Internet phone accounts arranged in Barcelona
  • a digital teleconferencing system in Houston
  • the use of Indian mobile phone connections
  • a domain name registered in Russia
  • a satellite phone registered in a Middle Eastern country
  • further links to Austria and Italy.
