Transcripts show Mumbai gunmen were commanded by phone

A transcript of phone calls intercepted during the Mumbai attacks shows that the 10 gunmen who carried out the attacks were in close contact with their handlers throughout the siege.

The transcript, part of a dossier of evidence that India handed Pakistan this week, was obtained by the newspaper The Hindu.

New Delhi says the evidence, which also included photographs of recovered weapons, data gleaned from satellite phones, and details from the interrogation of the lone surviving gunman, definitively proves that the Mumbai siege was launched from across the border.

Pakistani authorities have dismissed the evidence as “a propaganda offensive” designed “to whip up tensions” in the region.
