America has announced a bounty of ten million dollars for anyone who can locate the alleged militant who orchestrated the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, which killed 166 people.

Hafiz Mohammed Saeed is the founder of the Pakistani Lashkar-e-Taiba group, designated by the US as a 'foreign terrorist organisation'. Pakistan banned the group 10 years ago under pressure from America but Saeed still appears on TV and in public in Pakistan.

The Indian external affairs minister welcomed the news of the bounty but - reacting from his office in Lahore - Saeed's brother Hafiz Mohammed Masood, denounced the move saying the Americans will never succeed.
