Twelve Muslims face death penalty after being found guilty of killing 188 people in Mumbai

Twelve suspected Islamic militants face the death penalty after being convicted of bombing seven Mumbai commuter trains and killing 188 people in 2006.

The trial in India’s notoriously slow justice system came to a conclusion after more than seven years earlier today.

Controversy has dogged the investigation, with defendants claiming they were tortured by police eager to extract confessions and more than 200 witnesses being called to the stand.
