Mumbai gunman Kasab executed: Indian TV

Mohammed Kasab, the sole surviving gunman from the 2008 Mumbai attacks, was hanged on Wednesday in an Indian prison, the NDTV news channel said.

Kasab was executed at 7:30am (0200 GMT) at Yerwada jail in Pune in the western Indian state of Maharashtra after India's President Pranab Mukherjee rejected his mercy plea earlier this month, the channel said.
