Speaking in Islamabad, Rice claimed that enough evidence was now available to implicate Pakistan-based terrorists in last week's attacks, reports Bloomberg.

Condoleezza Rice said Pakistan's government has been given sufficient evidence to take action against suspects in last week's deadly terrorist attacks in Mumbai...
There is a "lot of information about what happened here, a lot of information," Rice said. "And so this isn't an issue of sharing evidence."...
Pakistan's leadership "is very focused and very committed" to acting against those who planned the attack, Rice told reporters after meeting President Asif Ali Zardai and Army Chief Ashfaq Parvez Kayani in Islamabad today.

According to Reuters India, a gunman detained in connection with the Mumbai attacks has confessed to ties to Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistan-based militant group.

The gunmen who attacked Mumbai took orders from the operations chief of a Pakistani Islamist militant group who was designated a terrorist by the United States in May, Indian security officials said on Thursday.
The lone surviving gunman told his interrogators he and the other nine attackers were in contact with Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, whom the United States says is the operations chief of the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant group....
Gunman Azam Amir Kasav told his interrogators they spoke to Lakhvi and other LeT leaders during their boat journey to Mumbai and also while they battled commandos inside two Mumbai hotels, where most of the 171 people who died in the attacks were killed.
