CHICAGO: Four Pakistanis have been charged as co-conspirators in the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people, including six Americans, US prosecutors said on Monday. The four were previously mentioned, but not named, in indictments charging American David Headley and Pakistani-born Chicago businessman Tahawwur Rana. All of the four newly-indicted figures are linked to the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba. Those newly indicted were Sajid Mir, Abu Qahafa, Mazhar Iqbal, and a fourth defendant known only by the alias “Major Iqbal.” None are in US custody. All four are believed to be in Pakistan.
