<mobile>+91-987654321</mobile></contact></root>
XML;
  
// Create a new document
$domDocument = new DOMDocument( '1.0' );
  
// Load the XML file
$domDocument->loadXML( $source );
      
// Use createAttributeNS() function to create new attribute
// node with an associated namespace
$attrNS = $domDocument->createAttributeNS(
                '{namespace}', 'info:cont_info' );
  
// Create XML document and display it
echo $domDocument->saveXML() . "\n";
  
// Assign value to the createAttributeNS
  
$domDocument->getElementsByTagName( 'contact' )
            ->item(0)->appendChild( $attrNS );
      
// Create XML document and display it
print $domDocument->saveXML() . "\n";
