Mumbai remembers 26/11 martyrs on 10th anniversary of attacks

US urges Pakistan to sanction terrorists behind Mumbai attacks

Cricket icon, Sachin Tendulkar also paid tribute to victims of the bad Mumbai terror attacks that took place a decade ago, saying "we shall stand united and tall against terror".

A decade after 10 Islamic terrorists laid a three-day siege to India's financial capital, Mumbai, and killed 166 people, businessman Dilip Mehta recalls the horror of the nine hours that he was holed up in a banquet hall in a luxury hotel, wondering when the gunmen would storm inside. "We will never let terrorists win, or even come close to winning!" he said.

India blamed the attack on the Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba, throwing relations between the nuclear-armed neighbours into a tailspin.

In April 2012, the Department of State announced reward offers for information that brings to justice LeT founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed and Hafiz Abdul Rahman Makki, another senior LeT leader.

But US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said those who planned the attack had not been convicted.

Continued Pompeo: "We call upon all countries, particularly Pakistan, to uphold their UN Security Council obligations to implement sanctions against the terrorists responsible for this atrocity, including Lashkar-e-Taiba and its affiliates".

Trump strongly defends use of tear gas on caravan migrants
President Trump said he would not hesitate to close the border altogether if he feels the USA might be losing "control". Human rights and immigration advocates called the use of pepper spray on women and children inhumane.

Indian officials accused Pakistan's intelligence agency of working with the militant group to mastermind the attack - an allegation Islamabad denied. So we must all work together to end the scourge of terrorism.

"10 years ago the people of Indian fell victim to a heinous terrorist attack in Mumbai".

In December 2001, the Department of State designated LeT as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation and in May 2005, the United Nations added LeT to the Consolidated UN Security Council Sanctions List. "There can be no justification for acts of terror and the United Kingdom continues to stand in solidarity with India in the fight against terrorism".

The centre promised to continue its efforts in bringing justice to the families of the victims and the soldiers who lost their lives fighting the terrorists. "May their memory be a blessing".

Newly-appointed Israeli Ambassador to India Ron Malka and Chabad House rabbi Israel Koszlovsky inaugurated the refurbished "Nariman Light House" and the "Nariman Light House Memorial" on the five-storied building rooftop at a solemn function.

"The attack killed 166 innocents, including six Americans".
