"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", he said.

Armed with AK-47 assault rifles and hand grenades, ten militants killed 166 people and injured hundreds more in a three-day rampage through India's financial capital which started on November 26, 2008. "We will never let terrorists win, or even come close to winning!" he said.

The US on Monday announced a Dollars 5 million reward for information leading to the arrest or conviction in any country of any individual who committed, conspired, aided or abetted the 2008 Mumbai attack.

"Our solidarity with the bereaved families.A grateful nation bows to our courageous police and security forces who valiantly fought the terrorists during the Mumbai attacks", Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Twitter.

From the mark it left on survivors and the families of the victims to the deep blow it struck to ties between India and Pakistan, the scars of the coordinated attacks that began on November 26th in 2008 still run deep.

India on Monday marked the tenth anniversary of the Mumbai terror attacks with ceremonies at sites across the city that became battlegrounds in the wave of violence that killed scores and dealt a critical blow to relations with neighboring Pakistan.

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.

France reiterated its condemnation for all forms of terrorism across the world and demanded that such crimes should not go unpunished.

On 10th Anniversary Of 26/11 Attacks, Mumbai Police are paying Tributes. "There can be no justification for acts of terror and the United Kingdom continues to stand in solidarity with India in the fight against terrorism". Among their targets was Nariman House - the Jewish community center operated by the Chabad movement in Mumbai.
