CHICAGO (AP) — An admitted American terrorist who is the federal government's star witness in the deadly 2008 attack in Mumbai says he is no longer proud of the rampage that left more than 160 people dead.

David Coleman Headley is testifying in the Chicago trial of his longtime friend Tahawwur Rana (tuh-HOW'-ur RAH'-nah), who is accused of cooperating with Headley in the three-day siege of India's largest city.

Headley has said that when the attacks happened in November 2008, he was proud of them because he said they were in retaliation for the deaths of Muslims.

But when defense attorney Patrick Blegen asked Headley on Thursday if he was still proud of the attacks, Headley said: "No."
