Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden had prior information of the 2008 terror attack at Mumbai, a new book has said.
The book, Pakistan’s secret war on Al-Qaeda, written by Azaz Syed said that Bin Laden had prior knowledge of the 2008 Mumbai attack.
Citing the book, Pakistan’s newspaper, Dawn reported, “He wanted to establish an Al Qaeda state in Pakistan following the breakout of full-scale war between the two nuclear-armed neighbours.”
The revelations were made in the book authored by Azaz Syed, an investigative journalist and a former correspondent for Dawn News.
As many as 166 people were killed in the 26-28 November Mumbai terror attack mounted by 10 gunmen from Pakistan who sneaked into India and let loose a reign of terror.
One of them, Ajmal Kasab, was caught alive, tried, sentenced to death and executed later.
