U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday condemned the "outrageous" attacks in India's commercial capital Mumbai, which have killed 20 people and injured 113 others, the White House said.

"I strongly condemn the outrageous attacks in Mumbai," Obama said in a statement issued by White House spokesman Jay Carney.

Calling India "a close friend and partner of the United States, " Obama pledged U.S. support in helping India "bring the perpetrators of these terrible crimes to justice."

Obama also said his administration "continues to monitor the situation, including the safety and security of our citizens."

Downtown Mumbai came under triple attacks Wednesday evening, which took place within minutes of each other. India's Home Ministry confirmed them as terrorist attacks.

It was the first major terror attack in the city after the 2008 siege that left 160 people dead.
