An Indian judge has sentenced a Pakistani man to death for his role in the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai.
Judge M.L. Tahaliyani on Thursday imposed the death penalty against Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, the only gunman captured alive during the three-day siege that killed 166 people.
The sentence was given on four counts, including murder and waging war against India. Kasab on Monday was found guilty of nearly all of the 86 charges against him.
The death sentence, carried out by hanging in India, must now be confirmed by a higher court. Experts say a lengthy appeals process will likely follow.
Pakistan has not commented directly on the sentence. But a Foreign Ministry spokesman, Abdul Basit said Thursday Pakistan has strongly condemned the Mumbai attacks, and it is important the culprits are brought to justice.
