Pak given confessions that may force it to nail militants linked to Mumbai carnageDecember 30th, 2008 - 1:49 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Dec 30 (AN): There are reports that Pakistan has received some confessions which confirms the involvement of Pakistan-based militants in the Mumbai attacks, the Dawn reports.
The evidence might force Pakistan to catch at least some of them. We may see some action soon, the Dawn quoted a US official, as saying.
Meanwhile, worried by the redeployment of forces from the Afghan border to the Indian border by Pakistan, the US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called the Indian Foreign Minister Pranab Mukherjee and Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari to discuss the issue.
Rice reminded Pakistan that its high time for Islamabad to catch those responsible for the Mumbai attacks, while urging India to show restraint, the Dawn quoted a US official as saying.
Pakistan has made some positive steps but the steps need to be continuous, and we need to have both sides work together to find the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks, Rice added.
India has accused Pakistan of doing very little towards dismantling the terror network on its soil, and trying to deflect international condemnation over Pakistans reluctance to bring the perpetrators of the Mumbai carnage to book.
Both Britain, as well as the Us have also handed over evidence to Pakistan, proving the links of the Mumbai terrorists with terror operatives in that country, bur Pakistan has said that such evidence would no stand the scrutiny of the countrys courts. ANI)
