By The Assam Tribune

WASHINGTON, Nov 26 - Remembering the victims of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, the US on Tuesday said those responsible for this �heinous� crime must face justice.

In one of the deadliest terror attacks in India�s history, 166 people were killed and over 300 injured when 10 heavily-armed terrorists from Pakistan created mayhem in Mumbai on November 26, 2008.

�On the 11th anniversary of the #MumbaiTerrorAttacks, our deepest sympathies to the families of the 166 innocent victims, including 6 US citizens. The US honours their memories and is committed to seeing those responsible for these horrific acts brought to justice,� Acting Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Alice Wells tweeted.

State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said that eleven years ago, a cowardly act of terrorism took the lives of 166 people, including six US citizens.

�Today we remember the victims of the Mumbai terror attack and stand with their families in demanding that those responsible for this heinous event face justice,� Ortagus said in a tweet on the 11th anniversary of the attack.

Indian-Americans and various groups will hold a rally in front of the Embassy of Pakistan in Washington to protest against the country�s role in the Mumbai attack.
