On Sunday, the U.S. offered up to a $5 million reward for information about the attackers who unleashed terror in one of India’s largest cities nearly 10 years ago. The attack killed one-hundred-sixty-six people, including six Americans. Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State, announced the reward in a statement, calling for justice for the families of the victims. The reward, which was offered by the State Department’s Rewards for Justice Program, is extended to those with information leading to the arrest or conviction of anyone involved in the 2008 attacks. In 2008, India blamed the attack on the Pakistani militant group, Lashkar-e-Taiba. This created tension between the two countries. Today, Pompeo has stated that the United States stands with the friends and family of those who were lost in the attacks back in 2008. This rewards could lead to terrorist potentially being caught, and out of the international system. This would eliminate them as a threat to the entire international community, and bring justice to those who lost loved ones in the attack.
