India accuses Pakistan over parliament attack

 

Indian Home Minister Mr Lal Krishna Advani has blamed Pakistan for supporting anti-Indian groups he said were behind last week’s attack on the national parliament.

"The Indian people are united and determined to stamp out terrorism," Mr Advani told parliament in a statement on last week's bloody attack that killed 13 people, including the five attackers.

Mr Advani blamed Pakistan for supporting two Pakistan-based Kashmiri separatist groups it says were behind the attack.

India has called on Islamabad to close down the separatist groups Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed, which it says are linked to Pakistan's main intelligence agency.
