An Indian court pronounced 12 men guilty on Friday for carrying out the 2006 series of train bombings in Mumbai.
The blasts killed 180 people and wounded over 800 on July 11, 2006, when seven pressure-cooker bombs detonated across the city within 15 minutes during rush hour. The men face the death penalty or life in prison at their Monday sentencing, the BBC reports.
“Justice has been done for the people of Mumbai. I will ask for the strictest punishment when I argue for their sentences,” the public prosecutor said.
