Ban Deplores Coordinated Terror Attacks in Mumbai

Ban Deplores Coordinated Terror Attacks in Mumbai

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

26 November 2008 – Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned tonight’s coordinated series of shootings and blasts by terrorists in Mumbai, which have killed or wounded scores of people in India’s commercial capital and largest city.

“Such violence is totally unacceptable,” Mr. Ban said in a statement issued by his spokesperson. “The Secretary-General reiterates his conviction that no cause or grievance can justify indiscriminate attacks against civilians.”

Mr. Ban offered his sympathies to the families of the victims and the wounded and voiced his solidarity with India’s Government and its people. He also called for the perpetrators of tonight’s attacks to be brought to justice.

India has been hit by many terrorist acts this year, including deadly explosions in the north-eastern state of Assam last month and earlier attacks in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Jaipur and Delhi.
