After a coordinated terror attack devastated the Indian city of Mumbai, India's prime minister pledged to beef up antiterrorism measures and investigate the systemic failures that led to the deaths of nearly 200 people. Police report that the only gunman who was not killed revealed that the group belonged to Lashkar-e-Taiba, an Islamist group with links to al-Qaida and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency. India has accused Pakistan of actively colluding with the terrorist organization. Pakistan's foreign minister swore that Pakistan played no role in the attacks, while the nation prepared to deploy troops to the border if necessary to guard against reprisals.
