Pakistan condemns Mumbai attacks

Pakistan, which has been accused by India of complicity in terrorism on its soil, on Thursday condemned the attacks in Mumbai and urged common efforts against militants. Indian leaders did not immediately apportion blame for the coordinated strikes on hotels and other targets in Mumbai, which killed more than 100 people, including several foreigners. Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi was in New Delhi for talks on the countries' slow-moving peace process when the gunmen struck late Wednesday. In a statement, Qureshi said terrorism was "a menace threatening humanity, and humanity should join hands in fighting this scourge." He said Pakistan condemns terrorism in all its forms, adding that his nation had suffered greatly while fighting it.
