India marked the tenth anniversary of the Mumbai terror attacks with ceremonies at sites across the city that became battlegrounds in the wave of violence that killed scores and dealt a critical blow to relations with neighbouring Pakistan.

Calling the Mumbai terror attack as a "barbarity", US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has called upon 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. The barbarity of 26/11 shocked the entire world.

On 10th Anniversary Of 26/11 Attacks, Mumbai Police are paying Tributes.

The coordinated attacks on the city of almost 20 million people hit luxury hotels, the main railway station, a restaurant popular with tourists and a Chabad center.

India's financial capital came to a standstill on November 26 a decade ago, when 10 Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists who came to Mumbai via sea route from Pakistan carried out a series of coordinated shooting and bombing attacks across the city. Nine of the attackers were killed by police, while lone survivor Ajmal Kasab was captured and hanged after a trial in India.

Indian officials accused Pakistan's intelligence agency of working with the militant group to mastermind the attack - an allegation Islamabad denied.

Pakistani police say the death toll from a bombing at an open-air food market in the country's northwest has risen to 25. Eyewitnesses reported seeing a blast, and local TV channels have broadcast images of a plume of smoke.

A total of 166 people died and over 300 were wounded in the strikes.

Announcing a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to arrests or convictions of those involved in the 2008 Mumbai attack, the United States also said that it was an affront to the families of the victims that those who planned the attack had not been convicted.

The United States already has a $10 million bounty offered for Saeed and $2 million for Hafiz Abdul Rahman Makki, another senior group leader.

"The United States is committed to seeing that those responsible for this attack face justice", said Mr Pompeo while a separate statement issued by the State Department said the USA was also "committed to working with our worldwide partners" to achieve this goal. Six people were killed during the siege at Nariman House, including Rabbi Gavriel Holzberg and his wife Rivka, who was six months pregnant at the time.
