Pakistan and India Still Divided Over Mumbai Attacks

Context
Even as top Pakistani and Indian officials make efforts to fix their strained ties, the two nuclear powers remain divided over the future of seven Pakistani nationals accused of playing a role in the terror attacks in Mumbai in 2008. The men have been detained in Pakistani prisons since their capture two years ago, and they all belong to an Islamic militant outfit once called Lashkar-e-Tayyaba. But there were no formal charges filed nor was any trial date set. Meanwhile, both governments have avoided sharing intelligence and blamed each other of deliberating slowing down the proceedings. Pakistan says that India hasn’t provided sufficient evidence for successful prosecution, whereas India accuses Pakistan of not being tough enough for militant organizations responsible for the tragedy.
