Massive bomb plot

The week's news at a glance.

Mumbai

India has finally wrapped up the trials of conspirators charged with setting off 12 car bombs in 1993 that killed 257 people in Mumbai. Authorities charged a total of 123 people in the plot, and have now won 100 convictions. The alleged masterminds, Dawood Ibrahim and Tiger Memon, are still at large. Indian authorities say they are hiding in Pakistan, a charge Islamabad denies. Among those convicted was Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt; he was cleared of participating in the actual conspiracy, but was convicted last month of possessing illegal arms. The attack was an act of Muslim retaliation for the destruction of a historic mosque that was torn down by Hindu extremists the previous year.
