Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the Mumbai terrorist attacks, also called 26/11 attacks. Many leaders commemorated the day, including US president of United States Donald Trump. Remembering the day, Trump said that “The United States stands with the people of India in their search for Justice”.


In his usual way of communication, Trump Tweeted, “On the ten-year anniversary of the Mumbai terror attack, the U.S. stands with the people of India in their quest for justice. The attack killed 166 innocents, including six Americans. We will never let terrorists win, or even come close to winning!”


Trump did not just commemorate the day, he also made a step worth of applauds. US Secretary Mike Pompeo made some announcements in regard to capturing the culprits. According to a statement given to media, he said, “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," Mr Pompeo said in a statement.


"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-Tayyiba and its affiliates."


"We stand with the families and friends of the victims, whose loved ones were lost in this act of barbarism, including six American citizens," Mike added.



He also announced a reward of 5 million dollars for any kind of information leading to an arrest of conviction in 26/11 attacks.



United Nations, too, remembered the day as a black patch in the history. A statement by United Nations states, “As a matter of principle, we always believe that those who are responsible for violence, random violence for acts of terrorism should be brought to justice.”
