"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-Tayyiba (LeT) and its affiliates", said the USA secretary of state on the tenth anniversary of the attack. "Thank you", she said. A statement from the program on Monday confirmed that the U.S. was "committed to working with our worldwide partners to identify and bring to justice those responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attack".
The reward offered under the State Department's Rewards for Justice (RFJ) Programme is for "any individual who committed, conspired to commit, or aided or abetted in the execution" of the attack that killed 166 people, a Department media note said on Sunday.
"It is an affront to the families of the victims that, after ten years, those who planned the Mumbai attack have still not been convicted for their involvement", Pompeo said in a statement.
"Our citizens died together".
The US on Monday announced a United States dollars 5 million reward for information leading to the arrest or conviction in any country of any individual who committed, conspired, aided or abetted the 2008 Mumbai attack.
To honour the memory of the victims, a moment of silence was observed by the attendees followed by lighting of candles.
Mumbai's police force will remember the more than a dozen officers who were killed, many while fighting the militants, at a ceremony starting at 09:30 am local time.
