Mumbai Terror Attack
Mumbai, Nov 26: Even when the country is observing the fifth anniversary of the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, the United Nations seeks justice for the dead and punishment for the terrorists.

In a strong message sent out to Pakistan, Martin Nesirky, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon's spokesperson, said,"it is important that the perpetrators of the terrible crime should be brought to justice."

Condemning the attacks as awful and terrible, he further added,"Certainly, it is important that those who were responsible are brought to justice. There has already been some action in that regard."

Five years ago, 10 LeT terrorists launched unprecedented attacks at some of Mumbai's vital areas, killing 166 people, which also included Americans among other foreigners. Despite many requests by India to Pakistan to bring the perpetrators to justice, the latter has not paid any heed. India, now feels that Pakistan has not made any progress and is making false promises.

In fact, in a meeting with the Pakistani Prime Minister-Nawaz Sharif, Manmohan Singh had demanded a speedy action against the terrorists. Sharif, in turn, promised that action would be taken.

Meanwhile, a commemorative event has been organised in the New York today to observe the day. The event was organised by the American India Public Affairs Committee, along with the American Jewish Committee Asia Pacific Region, reports DNA.
