Homage for Mumbai victims, support for India from world over

Homage for the victims and words of support for India’s battle against terrorism poured in from across the world as the first anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks was observed on Thursday.

Paying tribute to victims of the deadly terror strikes that left 166 people dead, Australian Defence Minister John Faulkner said such attacks were a reminder that the threat of terrorism continued and there is need for constant vigilance.

“Australia was deeply shocked and appalled by the deadly and horrific attacks. Today, as we remember the victims we need to remind ourselves that the threat of international terrorism continues. We must remain vigilant and work together to defeat terrorism in all its forms,” he said.

Hundreds of Indians along with Australians and people of other nationalities joined a candlelight vigil at the Federation Square in Melbourne to remember the victims.

Facebook II

Så fik jeg prøvet en stor del af funktionerne i Facebook af. Det viste sig dog at være alt for tidskrævende og uoverskueligt, hvis man har et liv ved siden af.

Derfor har jeg nu slettet min facebook-konto.

Dette indlæg blot, så mine facebook-venner ikke tror, at jeg er blevet hacket eller lignende – det skyldes ren prioritering.

Saudi Arabia: Obama’s grandmother in Mecca for ‘Hajj’ ceremony

Mecca, 25 Nov. (AKI) – The grandmother of US president Barack Obama has arrived in Saudi Arabia for the ‘Hajj’ or Islamic pilgrimage to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, a Saudi daily said on Wednesday. Sarah Obama, 87, is being accompanied by a nephew and Obama’s cousin, Omran.

Obama, the mother of the American president’s father, lives in a village in Kenya and is one of the many guests of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud.

About two million Muslims converge on Mecca each year for the Hajj pilgrimage but Saudi officials were expecting fewer pilgrims this year due to the threat of the H1N1 virus known as swine flu.
