Terrorism has spread globally: FBI chief Robert Mueller

By Super Admin

New Delhi, Mar 4 (ANI): Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) chief Robert Mueller has said that the attacks on the Sri Lankan cricket team showed that terrorism has become a global issue.

"Terrorism in just not a local issue and not an issue of one country, it is an issue across the world," Mueller told reporters after his meeting with National Security Adviser M.K. Narayanan and Home Secretary Madhukar Gupta here on Tuesday.

The attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Pakistan on Tuesday bore the hallmarks of the same militants that carried out the attack on Mumbai in November.

"Needless to say the topic of our discussions was terrorism across the world. Most particularly the Mumbai attacks in which 170 persons were killed which included six Americans. We have seen unprecedented co-operation between our various agencies both during the Mumbai attacks and after the Mumbai attacks. And each of us are intent on assuming that those responsible are brought to justice," said Mueller.

Earlier, Mueller met Home Minister P. Chidambaram.

Mueller's visit comes after India and the US shared details of intelligence and investigations in last year's Mumbai terror attacks, a joint effort which forced Pakistan to admit that a part of the conspiracy was hatched on its soil.

The FBI's collaboration in the investigations of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks were crucial, with detailed analysis of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and Global Positioning System of satellite phones used by terrorists. (ANI)
