The only surviving gunman captured during the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks, which killed more than 150 people, has been hanged.
Indian officials say Ajmal Kasab, a Pakistani national, was executed in prison in the city of Pune after the Indian president rejected a petition for mercy.
Kasab was one of 10 gunmen who laid siege to Mumbai for nearly three days attacking luxury hotels, a railway station, a synagogue and other targets.
He was found guilty of waging war, murder and committing a terrorist act, the BBC reports.
A senior commander of Pakistan's Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group, which India blames for the assault on Mumbai, called Kasab a hero and says he will inspire more attacks.
The Pakistan Taliban says it is shocked by the hanging.
