Twelve men convicted of planning Mumbai train explosions that killed more than 180 people

Twelve men have been convicted of planning explosions that killed more than 180 people and wounded hundreds more in Mumbai in 2006.

Seven bombs went off within 15 minutes on packed commuter trains during the evening rush hour in India on July 11, 2006.

Police say the attack was triggered by disaffected Muslims at the behest of Pakistan-based Islamist militants.

The men will be sentenced on Monday, bringing to an end a trial that lasted eight years, involved more than 200 witnesses and depositions that ran into thousands of pages.
