NEW DELHI (Reuters) - The head of Pakistan's military intelligence service, the ISI, has agreed to come to India to share information after the attacks in Mumbai by Islamist militants, an Indian government spokesman said.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had requested the visit of Lieutenant-General Ahmed Shujaa Pasha when Pakistani leaders telephoned him in the wake of the attack, his spokesman said.
