26/11 has potential to be replicated: Obama

Voiced fear that Mumbai-type attacks can be replicated by terrorists in other parts of world, including the US, President-elect Barack Obama said his administration will focus on putting more pressure on "our major target" al-Qaida.

Asked about 26/11 terror strikes in an interview to ABC News, Obama said the "danger is always there" to have a Mumbai-type attack in an American city. "When you see what happened in Mumbai, that potentially points to a new strategy, not simply suicide bombings but you have commandos taking over... I think you have to anticipate that having seen the mayhem that was created in Mumbai, that there are going to be potential copycats or other terrorist organisations that think this is something that they can replicate," he said.
