A Pakistani-American man who pleaded guilty to scouting targets for the 2008 Mumbai attacks faces sentencing in a US court. The sentencing was originally set for January 17 but was postponed early January.
David Coleman Headley pleaded guilty on twelve counts of conspiracy during a hearing in a Chicago court in 2010. It is believed that he made several surveillance trips to Denmark and India, feeding the information he collected to the Islamic militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Headley also admitted to plotting attacks against the Danish paper Jyllands-Posten over the publication of derogatory cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
The Pakistan-born Chicago businessman is expected to receive a life sentence with no chance of parole. He initially denied the charges made against him, but decided to plead guilty to avoid the death penalty or extradition to India, Pakistan or Denmark.
Over 160 people were killed in the attacks that hit India's largest city.
