Mumbai attacks anniversary draws solemn tributes and new pressure on Pakistan

US announces $5 mn bounty on anyone behind Mumbai attacks

US urges Pakistan to sanction terrorists behind Mumbai attacks

But U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday that those who planned the attack had not been convicted.

India welcomed the statement by the United States calling on Pakistan to uphold their UN Security Council obligations to implement sanctions against the terrorists responsible for the 26/11, including the Lashkar-e-Taiba and its affiliates.

The reward offered under the State Department's Rewards for Justice (RFJ) Programme is for "any individual who committed, conspired to commit, or aided or abetted in the execution" of the attack that killed 166 people, a Department media note said on Sunday. In April 2012, it announced reward offers for information that brings to justice LeT founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed and Hafiz Abdul Rahman Makki, another senior LeT leader.

The current rabbi is to unveil a new memorial at the centre to all those who died in the 26/11 attacks.

A party linked to the charitable wing of the LeT contested Pakistan's national elections in July, failing to win any seats but winning more than 435,000 national and regional votes.

On the 10th anniversary of the terror attack that shook the country to its core, the Ministry of External Affairs on Monday issued a statement pulling up Pakistan for "showing little sincerity in bringing perpetrators to justice". "The barbarity of 26/11 shocked the entire world", he added.

Over 60 hours, four attackers shot dead guests and hotel staff, detonated explosives and set ablaze parts of the building - including its famous dome.

The Pakistani gunmen who waged the attack were killed or captured. A group of 10 terrorists carried out coordinated attacks across Mumbai which led to the death of at least 170 people and injured 300 more.

Arun Jaitley, the Finance Minister, on the tenth anniversary of Mumbai terror attacks wrote on Twitter, "We stand resolute & united against terrorism". Among their targets was Nariman House - the Jewish community center operated by the Chabad movement in Mumbai.

Residents and railway officials also paid their respects at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus train station where Mohammed Kasab, the only gunman caught alive, and another attacker killed nearly 60 people and wounded at least 100 others.

Hafiz Saeed was put under house arrest after the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, but was freed by a court in Pakistan in 2009.
