Obama condemns 'terrorist acts' in India
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is condemning deadly attacks in India's busy financial capital of Mumbai, calling them "deplorable terrorist acts."
The president, who visited Mumbai last fall, says the attacks were "outrageous" and his thoughts and prayers are with the wounded and those who lost loved ones. He said in a statement the U.S. government continues to monitor the situation, including the safety and security of U.S. citizens, and will support India's efforts to bring perpetrators to justice.
At least 17 people were killed in the near-simultaneous bomb blasts that rocked three busy neighborhoods during the evening rush hour Wednesday in Mumbai — the same city besieged by militants nearly three years ago.
Obama said he's seen the strength and resilience of India's people firsthand, and they will overcome the bombing.
