Chicago man helped Mumbai attack plot, US prosecutor says

CHICAGO - US prosecutors on Monday outlined an elaborate plot that allegedly preceded the 2008 attack on Mumbai, saying a Chicago businessman helped make it possible for terrorists to scout their targets.
The trial of Tahawwur Rana began weeks after the killing of Osama bin Laden by US special forces that raised questions about whether Pakistani authorities knew the al-Qaida leader was in their country and about their commitment to fighting terror groups.
"He (Rana) not only knew of the attacks, he approved of them, and agreed with them" prosecutor Sarah Streicker said in her opening statement to the jury in US District Court in Chicago.
