VATICAN CITY: Pope Benedict XVI is condemning the "brutal attacks" in Mumbai and calling for an end to all acts of terrorism.

A message of condolences released by the Vatican on Thursday says the pontiff is "deeply concerned about the outbreak of violence" in the Indian city. Benedict is expressing his "heartfelt condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives in these brutal attacks."

In a telegram to Cardinal Oswald Gracias, archbishop of Mumbai, the pope says he "urgently appeals for an end to all acts of terrorism, which gravely offend the human family."
