Dharamsala, November 28 -- Exiled Tibetan leader His Holiness the
Dalai Lama Thursday offered his condolences and prayers to victims of
Mumbai terror attacks.

In his condolence letter sent to the Indian Prime Minister Dr.
Manmohan Singh, the Nobel Peace laureate said he was "deeply saddened
and shocked by the series of deadly attacks in different parts of
Mumbai that has resulted in the loss of many precious lives and
injury to many others."

"I would like to convey my deep condolences to you and through you to
the members of the bereaved families as well as to all those affected
by these dastard acts," the Dalai Lama added.

Saying he had always admired the resilience of the people of India,
the Dalai Lama added that he had no doubt that they would not be
deterred by "such anti-human activities."

"I would like to reiterate my solidarity with the Indian people,
particularly the people of Mumbai, as you confront the menace of
terrorism and violence," the Dalai Lama wrote in the letter.

According to latest news reports, the death toll in the India's
financial capital has climbed to at least 143. Heavily armed
militants attacked at least 10 sites across Mumbai, including two
five-star hotels, a hospital and a Jewish center, since late
Wednesday night reportedly injuring hundreds of people injured.
