In India investigators have charged the lone surviving gunman from the Mumbai attacks with 12 crimes.

Among them, murder and waging war against India.

Pakistani Mohammed Ajmal Kasab has been held by the police since he was captured in the early hours of the attacks on November 26, 2008.

But he has not been formally charged. Nine other attackers were killed during the three-day siege, which left 164 people dead.

The charges are derived from 150 witnesses and closed circuit television footage.

If convicted on the two most critical charges -- murder and waging war against India -- the 21-year-old Kasab would likely face the death penalty.
