NEW DELHI, Nov 21 (Reuters) - India hanged Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, the only
militant to have survived the 2008 attacks on the financial capital Mumbai, the
Home Ministry said on Wednesday.
In August, India's Supreme Court upheld
Kasab's death sentence over the attack on a string of targets in Mumbai that
killed 166 people. Kasab was a Pakistani national.
"Ajmal Kasab was
executed at 7.30 this morning," Home ministry spokesman K. S. Dhatwalia said.
It was the first time a capital sentence had been carried out in India since 2004.
