Britons 'among Mumbai attackers' UK officials have confirmed they are investigating reports of Britons being among those who carried out the terrorist attacks in Mumbai. It follows a report on Indian news channel NDTV that there were British citizens among the militants. British security sources have told the BBC they are asking their Indian counterparts for information. But Foreign Secretary David Miliband said it was "too early to say" whether any of those involved were British. 'Debriefed and questioned' : According to UK officials, no hard evidence of British nationals being among the attackers had yet been provided by Indian authorities, BBC security correspondent Gordon Corera said. Mr Miliband told Sky News that Britain would work "very, very closely with the Indians", but added that it was too soon to determine the nationality of the terrorists. "I'm afraid I don't have any information about that at the moment," he said. "Obviously, the priority of the Indian authorities is to complete this operation. They can then start identifying who are the terrorists, what is their background. "If any of them are alive, they can be debriefed and questioned." One British national, Andreas Liveras, died and at least seven Britons were hurt in the attacks on the Indian city, which left at least 130 people dead. Prime Minister Gordon Brown said it was too soon to say whether Britons were involved, and Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said British authorities had "no knowledge" of any home-grown links
