The US Treasury Department designated eight Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) leaders today, including the point man for the November 2008 attack on Mumbai. Also designated was the son of LeT chieftain Hafiz Saeed.
The man suspected of being a key facilitator for the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks has reportedly told authorities that the attackers were trained by al Qaeda operatives.
Saudi authorities arrested Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari, a key operative in the 2008 Mumbai attacks, earlier this month. Ansari has reportedly implicated Pakistani officials in the attacks.
