Mumbai, India (AP) India is demanding that the U.N. Security Council declare a Pakistan-based Islamic charity a terrorist group.
India says the charity is really just a front for the militant organization being blamed for the attacks in Mumbai, India, last month. A top diplomat adds Pakistan must take “urgent steps to stop their functioning.”
The accused charity came into creation after the militant group it's allegedly a front for was banned by Pakistan. The charity denies any association with the militants.
India's appeal comes as Pakistan acknowledged the arrests of two men reportedly wanted by India in connection with the attacks.
Later this week, the U.S. is expected to send Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte to New Delhi.
