(London Daily Mail) India executed the lone surviving gunman from the 2008 terror attack on Mumbai early today, the country’s home ministry said.

Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, a Pakistani citizen, was one of 10 gunmen who rampaged through the streets of India’s financial capital for three days in November 2008, killing 166 people.

Kasab was hanged in secrecy at 7:30 a.m. today at a jail in Pune, a city near Mumbai, after Indian President Pranab Mukherjee rejected his plea for mercy.
