the November 2008 attacks. Prosecutors accused him of scouting out
targets, including the Taj Mahal and Oberoi hotels, the Leopold Cafe, a
landmark called Nariman House and a large railroad station, all of
which were struck by terrorists.
The 49-year-old Headley was scheduled to appear in federal
court Wednesday. He could get the death penalty if convicted.
Authorities in Washington say he is cooperating with the government.
Headley also is charged with planning an armed attack on the
Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, which published a dozen cartoons in
