LAHORE: The US government did not announce any bounty for Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, suspect in the Mumbai terror attacks, American ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter has said, blaming Pakistani media for "misreporting" the issue.

"Though Hafiz Saeed is a suspected accused of the Mumbai terror attacks, the US government didn't place any bounty/head money for him," Munter was quoted by the Dawn newspaper as saying on Saturday.

However, in the first week of April, American website Rewards for Justice had announced that information leading to Saeed's arrest or conviction shall be rewarded with upto $10 million.
