The terrorists who attacked Mumbai
came via sea routes from Karachi in
Pakistan, according to an intelligence
Witnesses say the attackers were young
South Asian men speaking Hindi or Urdu,
suggesting that they are probably members
of an Indian militant group rather than foreigners.
The attacks were claimed by a
previously unknown group calling itself
the Deccan Mujahideen in an e-mail to
news organisations.
Deccan is an area of southern India.
Analysts say that while it is not
clear whether the claim is genuine,
the attacks were most likely carried
out by a group called the Indian Mujahideen.
The name used in the claim of responsibility
suggests the attackers could be members
of a south Indian offshoot or cell
of the Indian Mujahideen.
Indian police say the Indian Mujahideen
is an offshoot of the banned Students' Islamic
Movement of India (SIMI), but that
local Muslims appear to have been
given training and backing from militant
groups in neighbouring Pakistan and Bangladesh.
