With Indo-Pak tensions rising, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was in India. "I have said that Pakistan needs to act with resolve and urgency and cooperate fully and transparently. That message has been delivered and will be delivered to Pakistan". Meanwhile, there were rumours of external affairs minister Pranab Mukherjee having given an ultimatum to Pakistan President Zardari. Later, as Pakistan seemed unwilling to act, the Washington Post said that Pakistan had been given 48 hours to act against Lashker-e-Toiba (LeT) and to arrest at least three Pakistanis claimed by India to be behind the Mumbai attakcs: LeT leaders Zaki ur-Rehman Lakhwi and Yusuf Muzammil, and the former director of Pakistan's spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Hamid Gul.
