U.S. Prosecutors Charge Four More Men for Mumbai Terror Attack

According to reports, just weeks before the trial of a Canadian man is to begin in Chicago on charges he provided material support to the perpetrators of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, U.S. prosecutors have added four defendants to the case, none of whom is in U.S. custody.

The four men, according to Bloomberg, are alleged to have connections to Lashkar-e-Taiba and each “faces six counts of aiding and abetting the murder of U.S. citizens in India, which carry maximum sentences of death or life imprisonment.” The four men were also indicted on terrorism support charges and several were charged with conspiracy to bomb public places in connection with the attack, which killed 164 people, including six Americans.

The defendants were identified as Sajid Mir, Abu Qahafa, Mazhar Iqbal, and a fourth only by the pseudonym ‘Major Iqbal.’
