Chicago Terror Case Expands

The two Chicago men arrested in October and accused of plotting to attack the Danish newspaper that published offensive cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad also had prior knowledge of last year's terror attacks in Mumbai, according to federal investigators. U.S. authorities said they had taped a conversation held between the two men in which both suspects, Tahawwur Rana and David Headley, state they had known beforehand when the attacks would occur, and in which Rana asks Headley to pass congratulations along to the mastermind behind the Mumbai strike. Rana is said to have possibly funded Headley's scouting trips to Mumbai, and Pakistani authorities believe both men attended the same military high school in Pakistan as Sajid Mir, suspected to be Headley's handler in Lashkar-e-Taiba, the militant group that carried out the Mumbai attacks.
