    Pakistan-India relations in focus

    New Delhi has blamed the attacks on the banned Pakistani group Lashkar-e-Taiba, and Islamabad is under pressure from India and major powers to crack down on the Pakistani-based group.

    New Delhi said all 10 armed men involved in the attack were Pakistanis and that their handlers in Pakistan had kept up communication by phone during the three-day assault on hotels, a railway station and a Jewish community centre.

    The information that led to the arrests came from India.

    Malik said that police had traced a boat engine used by the attackers to Pakistan and infiltrated two hideouts of the suspected perpetrators in the country.
