‘We have not forgotten’: Mumbai police pay tribute to 26/11 victims

US announces $5 mn bounty on anyone behind Mumbai attacks

The US President tweeted, "On the ten-year anniversary of the Mumbai terror attack, the US stands with the people of India in their quest for justice". As many as 166 people were killed in the attack carried out by 10 LeT terrorists.

"We welcome statement issued today by United States calling on Pakistan to uphold their UN Security Council obligations to implement sanctions against terrorists responsible for 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, including Lashkar-e-Taiba and its affiliates", the statement said.

Played out on TV news channels around the world, the bloody events - widely known as 26/11 - have been compared in India to New York's suffering on September 11, 2001.

Member of Parliament of the United Kingdom took to Twitter saying, "On the 10 year anniversary of the appalling attacks in Mumbai my thoughts are again with the families and friends of those killed and injured".

They hit several targets in a series of coordinated attacks, including posh hotels, the city's main railway station, a restaurant popular with tourists and a Jewish center. Nine of the attackers were killed by police, while lone survivor Ajmal Kasab was captured and hanged after a trial in India.

Six Americans were among the Mumbai victims and the US State Department announced a $5 million prize for the capture of the remaining planners of the attacks.

The Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel will hold a private service to remember the 31 people who died there.

Commemorating the tenth anniversary of the Mumbai atrocities, Pompeo said it was "an affront to the families of the victims that, after ten years, those who planned the Mumbai attack have still not been convicted for their involvement".

The rewards have not worked so far and Saeed operates openly in Pakistan, leaving the effectiveness of the latest steps open to question.

According to Harsh Pant at New Delhi's Observer Research Foundation, the 2008 Mumbai attacks continue to cast a shadow on India-Pakistan relations."When you talk of rapproachment with Pakistan, when you talk of talks with Pakistan, the stakeholders are very limited", he said."The question comes: why have we failed in bringing those who perpetrated these acts to book?"

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

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.
