Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, accused of masterminding the Mumbai attacks, has a price on his head – $10 million offered by the US.

Saeed founded Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba, blamed for the deadly rampage.

India says the reward, 7.5 million euros, highlights efforts to bring those responsible to justice.

“It also sends a strong message to the Lashkar-e-Taiba…. that the international community remains united in combating terrorism,” said S.M Krishna, India’s Minister for External Affairs, at a news conference in New Delhi.

Hotels, a Jewish centre and a train station were all targeted in the 2008 attacks on India’s financial capital.

The US says six Americans were among 166 people killed. Saeed, a free man in Pakistan, denies any involvement in militant violence.
