Pakistan's PM says 'no doubt' that India was behind stock exchange attack  

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan told parliament on Tuesday he had 'no doubt' that India was behind an attack on the stock exchange building in Karachi a day earlier.

Four gunmen armed with grenades attacked the Pakistan Stock Exchange on Monday, killing two guards and a policeman before security forces killed the attackers.

India said on Monday it had nothing to do with the assault.

"There is no doubt that India is behind the attack," Khan said in his address to parliament. "For the last two months my cabinet knew (there would be an attack) I had informed my ministers. All our agencies were on high alert," he added.

A border clash has plunged ties between India and China to their lowest point in decades. Experts say India could finally end equivocation about openly aligning itself with the long-eager United States, although there will still be disagreements -- which, paradoxically, are now mostly due to Washington.
