Mahmud Ali Durrani, the former Pakistan National Security Advisor, speaking at a security conference in Delhi admitted that a terrorist group based in Pakistan carried out the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

"I hate to admit that the 26/11 Mumbai attack carried out by a terror group in Pakistan is a classic trans-border terrorist event," Mahmud Ali Durrani said.
