Pakistan sends Mumbai attack DNA data to Interpol

March 23, 2009 02:05

Pakistan has provided Interpol with DNA profiles of suspected terrorists linked to the Mumbai attacks, the international police agency said. Interpol said Sunday it immediately ran the information through its international database of some 85,000 DNA profiles to help Pakistani investigators carry out their search for "the full international dimension" of the attacks. It did not say if there were any matches. India says the 10 gunmen - only one of whom was caught alive - were Pakistanis and blamed a Pakistan-based militant group for the November terrorist attacks that killed 164 people. Pakistan said last month that some leads pointed to Europe and the United States. Pakistan has announced criminal proceedings against eight suspects over the attacks. Interpol said from its Lyon, France headquarters that it had received the information on Saturday - about two weeks after announcing that Pakistan planned to hand over the DNA profiles.
