An Indian court has sentenced a Pakistani man to death over the Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people.

Mohammad Ajmal Kasab was the only one of the ten gunmen captured alive following the three-day rampage in November 2008 which targeted key landmarks, including two luxury hotels, the main train station and a Jewish centre.

The attack raised tensions between India and its nuclear-armed neighbour Pakistan.

Kasab was found guilty on Monday of more than 80 charges, including murder and waging war on India.

The death penalty, which in India is carried out by hanging, must be confirmed by a higher court.
