Details of the Mumbai Terrorists

Police in Mumbai today released the home addresses in Pakistan of the nine dead gunmen who allegedly attacked India's financial centre last month. The Mumbai police say that all of the nine men are from Pakistan.

Here is a static map of the released addresses.

A. Two of the men were from Okara
B. Three from Multan
C. Two from Faisalabad
D. One was from Sialkot
E. The leader Ismail Khan is from Dera Ismail Khan

I decided to map this mainly in response to Advocate Amit Karkhanis' petition to the Indian Courts to ban Google Earth because it is claimed the service was used by the terrorists to plan their attack on Mumbai.

Considering their use of boats it is likely that the terrorists used far more sophisticated GPS technology in their attack on Bombay.

Here is a list of some of the technology said to have been used in the attack; satellite phones, mobile phones, a GPS tracker, a fishing trawler, inflatable dinghies, guns, grenades, bombs, taxis, a van, credit cards, Blackberries and Google Earth.
