ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan's Taliban movement expressed shock on Wednesday over India's execution of the lone survivor of a militant squad that killed 166 people in a rampage through the financial capital Mumbai in 2008.

"There is no doubt that it's very shocking news and a big loss that a Muslim has been hanged on Indian soil," Taliban spokesman Ihsanullah Ihsan told Reuters.

What did those cowards in the taliban expect? That the snivelling murderer would be given a bunch of flowers, a medal a Mercedes Benz????

Hopefully its carcass will be burned to ashes and then flushed away down the nearest toilet!
