Ban Ki-moon on the tragic events in Mumbai:

“Such violence is totally unacceptable,” Ban’s spokeswoman said in a statement. “The Secretary-General reiterates his conviction that no cause or grievance can justify indiscriminate attacks against civilians.”

“He calls for the perpetrators to be brought to justice swiftly,” the statement said, expressing sympathy for the families of the victims and solidarity with the people and government of India.

Note that in addition to hotels, a train station and a popular cafe, the attackers targeted hospitals.
