Financier of Mumbai terror attack jailedWorld | REUTERS 13 Feb 2020
Hafiz Saeed, accused of masterminding 2008 attacks in Mumbai, was imprisoned for 5 1/2 years in Pakistan yesterday for financing terrorism.
The sentencing in Lahore came as the Financial Action Task Force was to decide whether to blacklist Pakistan for failing to stop support for terrorists.
Saeed, 70, was charged with collecting funds for his groups, which the United Nations and the United States designate as terrorists.
He founded Lashkar-e-Taiba, or Army of the Pure, blamed by India and the United States for the Mumbai action in which 160 people died.
