An Indian court has sentenced to death the only gunman captured alive after the Mumbai attacks in 2008.

Mohammad Ajmal Kasab was the only one captured alive of ten gunmen who carried out the coordinated attacks on landmarks in India's financial capital in November 2008, killing 166 people.

An Indian court sentenced Kasab to death, two days after finding him guilty of the three-day rampage that strained ties between the nuclear-armed South Asian neighbours.

He has the right to appeal.
