The militants behind the Mumbai attacks used mobile phones that were activated in the United States and paid for with funds sent from Italy, it was reported yesterday.

Italy’s Corriere della Sera newspaper said the details were in intelligence information sent by India to Italy and other countries, so that anti- terrorist officers could investigate any ties to the network behind the November assault that killed 179

It said the Italian authorities were investigating a wire transfer sent to the US from the northern Italian city of Brescia by a Pakistani-born suspect. The suspect, named as Javaid Iqbal, sent the funds via Western Union to pay for five mobile phones with Austrian country codes – three of which were used by the attackers, Corriere said, citing the Indian dossier.

Iqbal, a former resident of Barcelona, has been arrested in Pakistan.

Islamabad acknowledged for the first time this month that the attacks had been launched from, and partly planned in, Pakistan.
