India Hangs Mumbai Attacker

Ajmal Kasab, the sole surviving gunman from the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attack that left 166 dead, was hanged in prison on Wednesday. Indian television covered the execution with blanket coverage, showing Kasab in a black shirt and wielding an automatic weapon. During the 60-hour siege in Mumbai, Kasab and an accomplice carried out an assault on a railway station, killing 52 people. Kasab, a Pakistani citizen, was given far less coverage in his home country, which offered no official statement on the hanging.
