Interpol Issues Global Alert For 13 Mumbai Terror Suspects

Pakistan has issued a global alert for 13 suspects in connection with November's attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai. The international police network, Interpol, said that the alert asks member countries for help in locating the fugitives. It also asks them to report any leads to Pakistan.

India has repeatedly complained that Islamabad has been slow in pursuing those responsible for the attacks. More than 170 people were killed in the Mumbai attacks, nine of them gunmen. India believes the Pakistan-based militant group, Lashkar-e-Taiba, was behind the attacks.

"The authorities in Pakistan are to be commended for making full use of Interpol's global network and tools," the agency's Secretary General, Ron Noble, in a statement issued from its headquarters in France.

"This demonstrates their commitment to allowing all of Interpol's 187 member-countries to benefit from and help with the investigation into the Mumbai terrorist attacks," he said.

Correspondents say that the 13 suspects were not named in the statement. But Interpol said their names and other information would be included in the police agency's databases and circulated worldwide.
