Pakistan frees Mumbai attack 'mastermind' on bail

The man accused of masterminding the 2008 Mumbai attacks in India has walked free from a Pakistani jail, after a court ordered his release on bail.

Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi is still facing trial in connection with the attacks which killed more than 160 people.

There had earlier been three other court orders for his release but until now the Pakistani government had extended his custody. India says it is disappointed.

Shaimaa Khalil in Islamabad and Sanjoy Majumder in Delhi spoke to Stephen Sackur.
