Pakistan admits Mumbai attacks planned on its soil

Planners had a “hide-out” there

Pakistan has admitted for the first time that last year’s terrorist attacks on Mumbai were partly planned in Pakistan and said it has arrested six new suspects, including “the main operator.” India had previously said “official agencies” in Pakistan played role in the attacks, accusations that dramatically escalated tensions between the two countries. Pakistan did not go so far as to say its intelligence agencies might have been involved in the attacks, but acknowledged that the boats used in the attacks were launched from Pakistan and said the planners had a “hide-out” there.
