Official: Pakistani confesses to Mumbai attacks

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - December 31, 2008 - The revelation could add to pressure on Pakistan to either bring the militant and other suspects to trial, or extradite them to India.

The confession was first reported in the Wall Street Journal.

Gunmen targeted 10 sites, including two five-star hotels and a Jewish center, during the November siege on /*Mumbai*/'s financial capital. They killed 164 people in a three-day reign of terror.

India and the United States say the militants who planned and carried out the attacks were Pakistani. They're demanding Islamabad take action against those responsible.
