The trial of the only surviving Mumbai gunman began today with the prosecution claiming the attacks were part of a criminal conspiracy hatched in Pakistan.

The special public prosecutor claimed the sophistication of the raid suggested the involvement of intelligence professionals in Pakistan.

Mohammed Ajmal Kasab is charged with 12 criminal counts, including murder and waging war against India.

Prosecutors say Kasab and nine other gunmen, who were killed during the siege, are responsible for the deaths of 166 people and the wounding of 304 more.
