UK: No evidence India terrorists were British

The British government is investigating whether some of the attackers in the deadly India shootings could be British citizens with links to Pakistan or the disputed territory of Kashmir but there was no such evidence yet, officials said. Earlier reports alleged that at least one of the gunmen could have been a British-born Pakistani. But a British Foreign Office spokeswoman, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with the department policy, said Friday that none of the attackers identified so far was British. "Our deputy high commissioner in Mumbai has spoken to the Indian authorities who have said that there is no evidence that anyone, either those shot, or those detained, are British," the Foreign Office spokeswoman told The Associated Press on Friday. Indian home minister Jaiprakash Jaiswal said a captured gunman had been identified as a Pakistani. Authorities were still trying to confirm the identities of several of the attackers.
