Indian police have arrested a key suspect behind the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

Indian-born Abu Hamza is thought to be one of the six handlers of the 10 Pakistani militants who arrived in India by sea from Karachi and carried out the attacks. A public prosecutor says the suspect will be held in police custody for 15 days.

Authorities believe Hamza is the voice of a previously unidentified man who was taped speaking by phone from Pakistan to the militants involved in the attacks. He is also said to have coached the attackers in speaking Hindi. 170 people died in the 11 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks across Mumbai, and more than 300 were injured.
