ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, executed in India on Wednesday for his role in the 2008 Mumbai massacre, was a "hero" who will inspire more attacks, said a senior commander of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

"He was a hero and will inspire other fighters to follow his path," the commander of the Pakistani militant group accused of masterminding the attack told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location.
