US Calls Upon Pakistan & Other Nations To Act On UN Resolution of Terrorists

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday asked Pakistan and other nations to uphold their UN Security Council obligations to implement sanctions against those responsible for the atrocity, including Lashkar-e-Taiba and its affiliates. On the 10th anniversary of the Mumbai terror attack, he said the attacks were barbaric which cannot be condoned. The US State Department’s Rewards for Justice (RFJ) programme offered a new reward for up to USD 5 million for information leading to the arrest or conviction of any individual who was involved in planning or facilitating the 2008 Mumbai attack.“It is an affront to the families of the victims that, after 10 years, those who planned the Mumbai attack have still not been convicted for their involvement,” Pompeo said in a statement on the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attack. “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-Taiba and its affiliates,” Pompeo said in a Statement. As many as 166 people, including Americans, were killed in the attack carried out by 10 LeT terrorists. Nine of the attackers were killed by the police while lone survivor Ajmal Kasab was captured and hanged after he was found guilty by the judiciary after protracted litigation of the heinous crime on 21 November 2012 at 7:30 am. The other perpetrators are yet to be nabbed. (pic courtesy to News 18)
