New Delhi (dpa) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday opened a memorial for victims of the 2008 Mumbai attacks at a Jewish centre in the city, among the several sites targeted during the deadly siege.

Moshe Holtzberg, an 11-year-old Israeli boy, whose parents were killed in the attack at the Chabad House, joined Netanyahu at the solemn event.

Holtzberg, who is visiting Mumbai for the fist time since the attacks, was accompanied by his nanny Sandra Samuel, who saved him by hiding in a room after the gunmen stormed the premises.

Netanyahu, who reached Mumbai on the last leg of his India tour, summoned Moshe and Samuel onto a dais at the Chabad House after which they unveiled plans for the "Living Memorial."

Netanyahu also unveiled a plaque in memory of Moshe‘s parents, Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, among the six Jews gunned down at the Chabad House.

Television images showed Netanyahu interacting with the shy, bespectacled Moshe and later kissing the boy‘s forehead.

According to the Chabad House, a centre for the ultra-orthodox Chabad-Lubavitch movement, the Living Memorial incorporates elements of the apartment where the Holtzbergs lived.

"On the top floor - where the sites of the other terror attacks that swept through Mumbai are visible - a reflection garden will offer a serene spot recognizing all the victims of the attacks," it said.

A total of 166 people were killed and more than 300 others were injured in the three-day rampage by militants from the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba group.
