A brief surveillance video appears to show gunmen in a Mumbai, India, hotel during coordinated attacks on several locations in November that killed more than 160 people, including many foreigners.
CNN has been unable to authenticate the video, which lasts for less than 20 seconds, but CNN’s sister network CNN-IBN said it received the video from police. In the video, two gunmen walk through what may be a lobby at the Hotel Trident, and another gunman shoots at what appears to be an empty reception desk. Only one of 10 suspected gunmen survived the three days of attacks that began on November 26. Authorities say Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, 21, faces a multitude of charges, including murder and attempted murder. See the video of what appear to be gunmen in hotel » Kasab was charged at a hearing on Wednesday, although he didn’t appear in court for security reasons, according to special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam. The next hearing is set for March 9.

Nikam said on Wednesday that the 50-page document describing the charges against Kasab also contains the names of 35 other suspects being sought in the crimes, many of whom are thought to be members of the militant Lashkar-e-Tayyiba group. The prosecutor said his office hopes to finish the trial for Kasab in three to six months. He has been in police custody since November 28.
Also charged Wednesday were two men accused of helping to plan the violence, Fahim Ansari and Sabahuddin Ahmed, according to the prosecutor. Indian authorities blame Lashkar-e-Tayyiba for the attacks, but the group has denied responsibility.
