SRINAGAR (Reuters) - The Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba denied on Thursday any role in the Mumbai attacks which killed more than 100 people.

"Lashkar-e-Taiba strongly condemns the series of attacks in Mumbai ... Lashkar has no association with any Indian militant group," Abdullah Gaznavai, chief spokesman of the group, told Reuters.

Lashkar is often blamed by India for attacks in its territory.
