India urges action against Mumbai attackers

India urged Pakistan on Saturday to take strong action against the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attack that killed 166 people three years ago.

India is waiting for Pakistan to act decisively after providing it with evidence on alleged perpetrators who are living in Pakistan, External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said.

Three years ago on Saturday, 10 Pakistan-based gunmen laid siege to India's financial hub, killing 166 people.

"No cause can justify the use of terrorism for attainment of goals," Krishna said.

India and Pakistan have recently resumed peace talks that were suspended after the attack.

India maintains that Pakistani intelligence officials helped plan the attack and that Pakistan has not done enough to crack down on those behind it.
