WASHINGTON, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President George W. Bush called Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Sunday, pledging to support India's efforts to hunt for plotters of Mumbai terrorist attacks, U.S. National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe said in a statement.
"President Bush told the prime minister that he has directed the state and defense departments along with other federal agencies to devote the necessary resources and personnel to this situation," Johndroe said.
"We would all be working together, with the international community, to go after these extremists," the spokesman said, adding that he believed "out of this tragedy can come an opportunity to hold these extremists accountable and demonstrate the world's shared commitment to combat terrorism."
The terror attacks in Mumbai, India, starting on Wednesday night, killed at least 125 people and injured 327 others.
Bush vowed on Saturday to fully support India in its efforts to investigate the terror attacks.
