King Mohammed VI of Morocco has condemned the terrorist attacks on India’s financial capital city of Mumbai, which left over 125 people dead and hundreds wounded, describing them as “heinous crimes”, according to a condolence message sent to Indian President Pratibha Patil. “The Moroccan kingdom strongly condemns these abominable crimes and all appalling terrorist acts which violate the security and lives of innocent citizens,” the Moroccan King wrote in the message, which was circulated by the state-owned news agency, MAP. The King said the attacks “are totally against all religious teachings, the universal principles and the democratic ideals shared by our two friendly peoples”.
