Islamabad, Jul 20: Days after India sought to put pressure on Pakistan to act against the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attacks, the United States has also reiterated the revelations made by the Pakistan-born American terrorist in connection with 26/11 to Pak.

"I don"t know the specifics (of the revelations made by Headley) but I know that it has been quite a revealing set of facts that we"ve shared with the Pakistani authorities," Clinton said during an interaction with a group of media personnel in Islamabad on Monday, Jul 19.

To a question if America would book Headley for the murder of six of its citizens in the Nov 2008 attacks, Clinton said, "I don"t know everything he"s been booked for... but he has been connected with many different events, including Mumbai, but others as well."

Headley's interrogation, which "brought much of this to light", is still going on, she informed, adding that he was "fully cooperative and he was willing to explain in great detail a lot of what he had done over the years".

To a question if the Pakistani authorities would be granted access to Headley, the US secretary of state said that the decision on this regard rests with the US justice department.

Headley is currently in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The Lashkar-e-Toiba operative, who has confessed to his terror links, ewas not only interrogated by the Amrican investigators but was also subjected to questioning by a team of Indian sleuths from the National Investigative Agency (NIA).
