A Pakistani-American who helped plan a 2008 attack on India's financial hub has told a court in India that he traveled to India seven times to scout potential targets for a Pakistan-based group.

David Coleman Headley gave the court details of his role in planning the attack in which more than 160 people were killed.

Headley said he supplied his handlers in the Lashkar-e-Tayyaba with videos and maps of hotels, a Jewish center and the city's main railway station that were attacked.

Headley testified by video conference Monday from an undisclosed location in the United States where he is serving a 35-year prison term for his role in the Mumbai attack.

The Mumbai court investigating the attack gave Headley a conditional pardon in December and allowed him to turn witness.
