India's top security official has resigned, as the government faces angry accusations that it did not do enough to prevent the deadly terrorist attacks in Mumbai.

Indian Home Minister Shivraj Patil submitted his resignation today (Sunday). He has been replaced by Finance Minister P. Chidambaram.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh told a meeting of all Indian political parties in New Delhi today that the government is strengthening its security capabilities. Mr. Singh announced that the main anti-terror force, the National Security Guard, will be increased in size. He also said measures are in place to establish a federal investigating agency.

About 175 people were killed in the three-day siege that began Wednesday with coordinated attacks across the city.

Indian commandos killed nine attackers during fierce combat at several locations.

One gunman was captured alive and identified as a Pakistani, adding to Indian accusations that Pakistan was involved in the attack. Pakistan has denied the charge.
