MUMBAI, India – India's top law enforcement official is admitting government "lapses" in last week's Mumbai attacks.

Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram said Friday "there have been lapses" on the government's part in the deadly assaults, and he's seeking to improve the country's security system.

His comments come amid a public uproar over intelligence and security failures in attacks that killed 171 people in India's financial capital.

Chidambaram replaced the previous home minister, who resigned last week in the wake of the attacks.
