Pakistan is prepared to amend its laws in the wake of the Mumbai attacks to help it prosecute militants who had committed acts of terror outside its borders, the country's prime minister has said.

Yousuf Raza Gilani told the Financial Times that his government was serious in its resolve to investigate and bring to justice those suspected of masterminding the devastating November strike on India's financial centre.

He also said his country "needed to act fast" to produce results that would ease tensions with India, which blames the Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba for the attack and has accused elements of the Pakistani state of being involved.
