ITUC Condemns India Terror Attacks

Brussels, 27 November 2008 (ITUC OnLine): The ITUC has condemned this
week's terrorist attacks in the Indian financial centre Mumbai as
despicable atrocities, aimed at innocent civilians from India and
abroad. More than 100 people are known to have been killed and more
than 300 injured in the series of coordinated armed attacks on public
spaces, a hospital, hotels and a Jewish community centre in various
locations around the city.

"Once again, it is ordinary people going about their legitimate business
who have been targeted. Our heartfelt sympathies go to all the victims
and those who have lost family, friends and colleagues in these
atrocious attacks," said ITUC General Secretary Guy Ryder.

The ITUC has written to its three Indian affiliated organisations, HMS,
INTUC and SEWA, expressing its condolences and its hope that the
perpetrators of the violence will be brought to justice.

The ITUC represents 168 million workers in 155 countries and territories
and has 311 national affiliates.
