NEW DELHI (AP) — Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says that Pakistan has a "special responsibility" to cooperate with the investigation into the deadly Mumbai attacks.

Indian and U.S. officials have blamed the three-day assault on militant groups based in Pakistan.

Rice said the United States expects all "responsible governments" to help with the investigation and "Pakistan has a special responsibility to do so and to do so transparently, urgently and fully."

Rice met Wednesday with Foreign Minister Pranab Mukherjee and other senior leaders during a visit to New Delhi.

Last week's attacks against 10 sites in Mumbai killed at least 171 people.
