US offers help in identifying terrorists

Describing the terrorist strike on Indian Parliament as an attack on all democracies of the world, the US State Department on Friday strongly condemned it.

The State Department also offered to help of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in probing the attack.

"We strongly condemn the outrageous terrorist attack on the Indian Parliament. No cause can justify the deliberate targeting of civilians. This brutal assault on the heart of Indian democracy is an attack on all democracies as well as an attempt to undermine the efforts of those seeking regional peace and stability," the State Department said in a statement.

"We extend our deepest sympathies to the families of the victims of this attack as well as our condolences to India, which has suffered many terrorist attacks over the years," it said.

It said, "Secretary (of State Colin) Powell spoke with Foreign Minister (Jaswant) Singh this morning to express our condolences and our determination to help the Indian authorities in identifying the attackers."
