New Delhi, Dec.1 (ANI): Japanese envoy to India Hideaki Domichi has condemned the recent terror attacks in Mumbai and said fighting terrorism is a common agenda for the nations of the world.
“I think it is the common agenda and all of us how to fight this the terrorism, it is time I think the Government of India and people has been suffering from the brutal forces of the terrorism and one Japanese citizen has been killed and the other one is injured and as far as we know that the search for the identity of those who has been killed is still underway,” said Domichi on the sidelines of an event here.
The attacks struck at the heart of Mumbai, the engine room of an economic boom that has made India a favourite emerging market.
Around 195 people were killed and 295 injured in the attacks.
Acting in small groups these militants indiscriminately shot people and within a short span of time left the metropolis bleeding.
Mumbai was hit by serial bomb blasts in 1993 that killed at least 260 people at the stock exchange and other landmarks. Two years ago, more than 180 people died when Islamist militants bombed commuter trains. (ANI)
