    Hafiz Saeed is founder of the Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba, which is blamed for the assaults that killed 166. The decision is likely to worsen tensions between Pakistan and India.

    Reporting from Islamabad, Pakistan, and New Delhi
    Pakistan's high court ruled Tuesday that authorities did not have enough evidence to arrest a firebrand Islamic cleric suspected of masterminding the deadly attacks on the Indian city of Mumbai. The ruling is likely to anger India's government at a time when the two rival countries seek a thaw in relations.

    Hafiz Saeed founded Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Pakistani militant group blamed for the string of assaults on luxury hotels, a railway station and other targets in Mumbai that killed 166 people in 2008. Considered one of India's most wanted men, he was freed from house arrest in June by a Pakistani court in Lahore that ruled that authorities had failed to link him to the Mumbai attacks or to any terrorist group.
