The trial started Friday for the Pakistani defendant believed to be the only surviving gunman in the Mumbai attacks. The prosecutor argued that the assault was part of a criminal conspiracy hatched in Pakistan. The special public prosecutor claimed the sophistication of the attack suggested the involvement of intelligence professionals in Pakistan. Mohammed Ajmal Kasab is charged with 12 criminal counts, including murder and waging war against India. Prosecutors say Kasab and nine other gunmen, who were killed during the siege, are responsible for the deaths of 166 people and the injury of 304 more.
