Pakistan warns India of troop redeployment
In India on Sunday, anger was directed not only at Pakistan but also at the country’s own security preparations.
The home minister resigned from his post and officials at the ministry were not available for comment.
Police in Bombay were lightly armed, without two-way radios or bulletproof vests. The city of 18 million had no SWAT team. It took hours for commandos to arrive from New Delhi, a delay that gave the gang of at least 10 terrorists time to consolidate their positions.
Reports said it took security forces 10 hours to overpower just two gunmen inside the Jewish center.
Apart from the American victims, the dead included visitors from Germany, Canada, Israel, Britain, Italy, Japan, China, Thailand, Australia and Singapore.
“Out of this tragedy can come an opportunity to hold these extremists accountable and demonstrate the world’s shared commitment to combat terrorism,” Mr. Bush told the Indian prime minister, Mr. Singh, in Sunday’s telephone call.
Mr. Bush also said “he has directed the State and Defense Departments along with other federal agencies to devote the necessary resources and personnel to this situation,” according to a statement released by White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe.
Miss Rice was scheduled to travel to Brussels for a NATO gathering. On Wednesday, after the NATO meeting, she will travel to New Delhi, according to her new itinerary, as reported by the AP.
