Mohammed Ajmal Kasab has been found guilty of the murders of 166 people in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

Kasab is said to have been one of 10 gunmen who killed 166 people in the three-day rampage in the city, also known as Bombay, that continues to strain relations between nuclear-armed neighbours India and Pakistan.

Nine gunmen were killed in the attacks.

Kasab was accused of the most lethal episode of the siege. Prosecutors say he and an accomplice rampaged through one of Mumbai’s busiest stations, killing 58 and wounding 104. The carnage was captured on film and became iconic images of the attacks.
