India slams Pakistan for showing ‘little sincerity’

India slams Pakistan for showing ‘little sincerity’

India marked the tenth anniversary of the Mumbai terror attacks with ceremonies at sites across the city that became battlegrounds in the wave of violence that killed scores and dealt a critical blow to relations with neighbouring Pakistan.

A total of 166 people including 28 foreigners from 14 nations were killed in the terror attack carried out by a group of Pakistani terrorists belonging to LeT. "We will never let terrorists win, or even come close to winning!" he said.

The US department on Monday said that it is committed to working with its global partners to identify and punish those who were responsible for the 26/11 attacks.

"It is 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", Pompeo said in a statement.

US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo announced on Sunday evening that the United States is offering a new reward of up to $5 million for information leading to the arrest or conviction of any individual who was involved in planning or facilitating the 2008 Mumbai attack.

From the mark it left on survivors and the families of the victims to the deep blow it struck to ties between India and Pakistan, the scars of the coordinated attacks that began on November 26th in 2008 still run deep.

In May 2005, Lashkar-e-Taiba was added to sanctions list of the UN Security Council. So we must all work together to end the scourge of terrorism.

He called on Pakistan to implement sanctions against those responsible and said the U.S. was offering a new $US5 million ($6.88 million) reward and was committed to seeing those responsible face justice.

Mumbai's police remembered more than a dozen officers killed in the operation against the militants while relatives of the victims laid wreaths at a police memorial honouring the dead. Pakistan, however, continues to act at snail's pace. "May their memory be a blessing". Among their targets was Nariman House - the Jewish community center operated by the Chabad movement in Mumbai.

The fifth floor served as the erstwhile residence of the slain rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife Rivka and their toddler son Moshe, who was barely two and saved by his Indian nanny Sandra Samuel, from the terrorists' indiscriminate firing that night.
