Pakistan takes over Jamaat-ud-Dawa
The Muslim nation had already closed or taken over several offices, schools and other properties of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa charity and detained much of its central leadership. On Sunday, a newly appointed government administrator took over the 75-acre compound in the eastern city of Muridke in Punjab province where the group has conducted much of its business.
India says the banned Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba staged the November attacks that killed 164 people. Soon after, the UN declared Jamaat-ud-Dawa was a front for Lashkar.
