Musharraf, Aziz condemn Mumbai blasts

July 11, 2006 22:40 IST

Terming the bomb blasts in Mumbai's trains that killed over 100 people as a "despicable act of terrorism," Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz have condemned the attacks.

"Pakistan strongly condemns the series of bomb blasts on commuter trains in Mumbai. This despicable act of terrorism has resulted in the loss of a large number of precious lives," said a statement issued by the Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Tuesday night.

"The President and prime minister have also strongly condemned this terrorist attack and have expressed condolences over the loss of innocent lives. Terrorism is a bane of our times and it must be condemned, rejected and countered effectively and comprehensively," the statement said.

The statement, however, made no mention of a string of grenade attacks at Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir that killed eight people.
