Pakistan : 26/11 plotters to go on trial soon    

Pakistan on Saturday said trial of the five accused in the Mumbai attacks would get underway in the next few days and that it has identified 12 more suspects, preparing the ground for next week's meeting in Egypt between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani.

"The first step was the investigation, which we have completed successfully. The second step is trial, which is going to start in the next few days," Interior Ministry Rehman Malik told a news conference after he shared the findings of the probe with India's acting High Commissioner Manpreet Vohra.

Malik said 13 people, including Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist captured in India for the Mumbai attacks, had been declared "proclaimed offenders" by Pakistani authorities. He handed over a dossier on Pakistan's probe and 15 questions seeking more information on the attacks to the Indian side.

Federal Investigation Agency chief Tariq Khosa, who was present at the news conference, said an interim chargesheet had been filed against the five suspects on April 28 and their trial had commenced.

After getting further information from India, investigators had prepared a second and updated chargesheet, he said.
