Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said the attacks of last week were "well-planned and well-orchestrated" and have "external links," reports Voice of America.

"We will take up strongly with our neighbors that the use of their territory for launching attacks on us will not be tolerated," he said. "And that there will be a cost if suitable measures are not taken by them."

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has denied Pakistani involvement and condemned the attacks, telling The Hindu: "I empathise with the people of Bombay. I feel the pain. I feel their loss and my heart goes out to their loss and the people you have lost."

[A]s the President of Pakistan let me assure you [that] if any evidence points to any individual or group in my part of the country, I shall take the strictest of action in the light of the evidence and in front of the world... Without any hesitation whatsoever, no matter where it may lead.
