US President George W Bush on Thursday spoke to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over phone and offered "support and assistance" to restore order following the coordinated terror strikes in Mumbai.

"President Bush spoke this morning by telephone with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to express condolences to the victims of the terror attacks in Mumbai, India, and solidarity with the people of India," White House Press Secretary Dana Perino said in a statement.

"The president offered support and assistance to the government of India as it works to restore order, provide safety to its people and comfort to the victims and their families, and investigate these despicable acts," she said.
