Drama at Mumbai terror trial

The sole surviving suspect in last year's terror attacks in Mumbai has retracted his confession on the opening day of his trial.

More than 170 people, including nine gunmen, were killed in the attacks in November 2008.

Pakistani national Ajmal Amir Qasab faces the death penalty, if he is convicted.

Karishma Vaswani reports from Mumbai.
