Anish Goel, senior director for South Asia affairs on the White House National Security Council staff, said this case “highlights how far our [counterterrorism] cooperation has come.”

Mr. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama arrive in Mumbai on Nov. 6 as part of a 10-day four-nation Asia tour. They will be staying at the Taj Hotel, one of the terrorists’ targets.

U.S. and Indian officials said the decision to stay at the Taj Hotel was no accident.

Mr. Obama will pay his respects to the victims of terrorism by signing the guest book at the Taj Hotel and will speak to a group of people who were affected by the attacks.
