Pakistan Taliban "shocked" over execution of Kasab

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan’s Taliban movement expressed shock on Wednesday over India’s execution of Ajmal Kasab, the lone survivor of a militant squad that killed 166 people in a rampage through the financial capital Mumbai in 2008.

“There is no doubt that it’s very shocking news and a big loss that a Muslim has been hanged on Indian soil,” Taliban spokesman Ihsanullah Ihsan told Reuters.
