American To Plead Guilty to Mumbai Attack Charges

An American citizen of Pakistani origin reportedly has agreed to plead guilty to charges against him in the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks.

David Headly, 49, is scheduled to appear Thursday in a federal court in Chicago to change his plea from not guilty, according to news reports, citing a federal court notice.

Headly was arrested last October in Chicago as he attempted to flee to Pakistan.

Charges against Headly include the murder of Americans, providing material support to a terror group, and conspiracy to murder and maim people in foreign countries.

The November 2008 attacks on several locations in Mumbai, India, killed 166 people, including six at the Mumbai Chabad House.

Indian security sources believe Headley cased the Chabad center, known as the Nariman House, for the Pakistani terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba, which is believed to be responsible for the attacks.

Indian investigators found that Headley visited all 10 Mumbai locations that were attacked.
