Hoyer Statement on Attacks in Mumbai

WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the deadly attacks in Mumbai, India:

“My thoughts are with all those killed and injured in today’s heinous attacks in Mumbai, India. India is a crucial ally and friend of the United States, and I have confidence that its people will show resilience and courage in the face of terrorism, which only attempts to sow fear. Attacks like today’s can, tragically, end lives; but they cannot destroy India’s commitment to the principles that have made it a thriving democracy. I look forward to the day when the perpetrators of these attacks are brought to justice, and I know that America stands by India in this time of need.”
