US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton opened a three-day visit to India on Saturday by attending a ceremony commemorating the terrorist attack in the coastal city of Mumbai last November that killed 166 people and raised Indian tensions with Pakistan.
The ceremony, which marked last November's terrorist attack, was private and closed to press coverage. It was held at the Taj Palace Hotel, where Clinton and her entourage were staying.
After the ceremony Clinton was set to meet with a group of Indian businessmen, as well as a women's non-governmental organization. She will also speak to university students in the city.
On Sunday and Monday, Clinton is scheduled to hold talks in New Delhi with Indian government officials on a wide range of issues, including nuclear nonproliferation, strengthening trade ties and combating climate change.
