USA reward for word about Mumbai suspects

USA reward for word about Mumbai suspects

The announcement came on the eve of the tenth anniversary of the assault, which left 166 people dead and hundreds injured after Islamist militants from Pakistan unleashed a wave of violence across India's financial capital lasting three days.

Trump took to Twitter on Monday and said the Unites States stands with the people of India in their quest for justice over the 26/11 attack.

The first phase of the "Nariman Light House Memorial" includes a plaque with the names of all the 166 victims of the 26/11 terror strikes, a gently flowing fountain in an artificial garden signifying the flow of life, purification and regeneration, and six planks signifying the prime targeted locations.

The Pakistani gunmen who waged the attack were killed or captured. "Thank you", she said.


It added, "Planners of 26/11 still roam streets of Pakistan with impunity".

The United States on Sunday announced a reward of up to $5 million (around Rs 35.2 crore) for information leading to the arrest or conviction of any individual involved in planning or abetting the Mumbai terror attacks of 2008.

"Our citizens died together".

The US, which is fighting the Taliban militants since 2001 in Afghanistan, continues to seek an exit strategy from the troubled country and in recent months Washington has held direct talks with the Taliban representatives to end the 17 year long war. "We must prevent the terrorists who committed this act of barbarism, LeT from ever threatening our people again", Sales said as he warned the terrorist group and its leaders that the USA will go after them whereever they are. The US has declared a $5 million reward for any information which would facilitate the arrest and conviction of India's culprits. Extracts from an article written on this occasion by Kia Scherr, the co-founder of a charity "One Life Alliance" and a family member of USA victims in this tragedy, was also read out.


The event among others was attended by Basant Sanghera and Jennifer Whethey, Director in the US National Security Council at the White House.

The murders at the Chabad center occurred one day after residents were taken hostage inside the building.

On behalf of the Government of the United States of America and all Americans, I express my solidarity with the people of India and the city of Mumbai on the 10th anniversary of the Mumbai terrorist attack. Since its inception in 1984, the program has paid over United States dollars 150 million to more than 100 people who provided actionable information that helped bring terrorists to justice or prevented acts of global terrorism worldwide.

Even after 10 years of the terror attack, the fear of terrorism is still in our inside.
