Mumbai attacker appeals against death penalty
There is tight security in Mumbai where a court has begun hearing an appeal by the sole surviving gunman of the 2008 attacks on the Indian city.
Mohammad Ajmal Amir Qasab, a Pakistani national, is contesting the death sentence passed in May.
Due to security concerns, the 23-year-old appeared at the high court in Mumbai via a video link from prison.
More than 170 people died when Qasab and nine other militants attacked various targets.
Qasab was found guilty of mass murder and waging war against India.
