Mumbai Attack Conviction

The Associated Press reports out of Mumbai,
"An Indian court on Monday convicted a Pakistani man of murder and waging war for his role in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks that left 166 people dead in the heart of India's financial capital. Two Indians accused of helping plot the attacks were acquitted."
Mohammed Ajmal Kasab,

"the lone survivor of the attack's 10 gunmen, ... was convicted on nearly all the 86 charges against him, including murder and waging war against India. While an exact total of the convictions was not immediately available, the handful of acquittals appear to have been for relatively minor charges, such as forging an identification card. Sentencing is expected to be Tuesday. He faces a possible death sentence."

It's still hard for this Westerner to understand the motivation behind the attack. The New York Times has many, many articles and reports on the attacks. You can read the archive results, here.
