A Pakistani court has temporarily halted the hearing of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack case to let the prosecutor produce more witnesses.

The trial, underway in an Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC)  has made little headway in more than 10 years as Islamabad has been claiming lack of enough evidence against them.

A divisional bench of the Islamabad High Court conducted hearing on a petition by the Federal Investigation Agency seeking stay on the ATC proceedings.

The Express Tribune reported that the court later granted stay in trial till next week to let the prosecutor summon some of the 19 witnesses for testimony.

Ten Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists had sailed into Mumbai from Karachi and carried out co-ordinated attacks, killing 166 people and injuring over 300 in November 2008.
