India marks the 10th anniversary on Monday of the Mumbai terrorist attacks that left 166 people dead and hundreds more injured.

India and rest of the globe today are marking the anniversary of the horrendous and one of the deadliest 26/11 terror attacks that happened in Mumbai a decade ago in the year 2008.

"On the ten-year anniversary of the Mumbai terror attack, the United States 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 will never let terrorists win, or even come close to winning!" he said.

In May 2005, Lashkar-e-Taiba was added to sanctions list of the UN Security Council.

The attacks took place at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) railway station, Cama Hospital, Nariman House business and residential complex, Leopold Cafe, Taj Mahal Hotel and Tower and the Oberoi-Trident Hotel in Mumbai.

It is the third such reward offered by the U.S. after the State Department announced bounties of $10 million for Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LeT) founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed and $2 million for Hafiz Abdul Rahman Makki, another senior leader of the group.

Ten years on, the United States has offered a new $5 million reward for the capture of the remaining attackers and called on Islamabad to cooperate with the hunt for the planners of the assault.

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".

Indian politicians and officials routinely condemn Pakistan for not taking action against LeT leader Hafiz Saeed. So we must all work together to end the scourge of terrorism.

Headley, whose original name was Daood Sayed Gilani, is serving a 35-year prison sentence in the United States for his role in the Mumbai attack and in a terrorism conspiracy against a Danish newspaper.

On 10th Anniversary Of 26/11 Attacks, Mumbai Police are paying Tributes.
