Sarkozy to pay homage to 26/11 victims

Mumbai: French President Nicholas Sarkozy will wrap-up his four-day India visit with a stop at Mumbai on Tuesday where he will pay homage to victims of the 26/11 attacks and also address business leaders.

Sarkozy will arrive from New Delhi in the morning and will first pay a visit to the Police Memorial on Marine Drive, dedicated to security men killed in fighting terrorists during the attacks in November 2008, official sources said.

The French President will take part in a special memorial service to be held at the Trident-Oberoi Hotel, another site which was attacked, where he is also expected to make an address, they said.

US President Barack Obama had also paid homage to the victims of the attacks during his visit last month besides interacting with business leaders in the financial capital of the country.
