India releases names, photos of Mumbai gunmen

MUMBAI, India (AP) -- Indian police have released the names of the nine suspected Islamic militants killed during last month's attack on Mumbai.

Chief police investigator Rakesh Maria gave the gunmen's names and aliases at a briefing Tuesday. He showed photographs of eight of the men. A photo of the ninth suspect was not released because his body was too badly burned.

Maria listed the districts and hometowns of the gunmen. All were from Pakistan.

He did not say how police had tracked down their hometowns. However, police have been interrogating the lone surviving gunman.

India has blamed the Pakistani-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba and demanded Pakistan take action.
