Two Pakistani men suspected of providing logistical support for attacks in India last year have been arrested in Italy.

More than 170 people, nine of them gunmen, died in the November attacks in Mumbai.

Police say the father and son were detained in an early morning raid in the northern city of Brescia, the BBC reports.

The pair are accused of supplying cash from their money transfer agency to pay for an internet phone account used by people in contact with the attackers.

In July this year, the sole surviving attacker pleaded guilty to 86 charges, including murder and waging war on India, and could face the death penalty.
