UK Foreign Secretary condemns bomb attacks in India
Foreign Secretary Jack Straw has expressed his condolences to the Indian Foreign Minister, Yashwant Sinha, following the bomb blasts in Mumbai. The Foreign Office has revised its travel advice for India following the attacks.
The explosions killed at least 40 people and injured many more.
"My thoughts and sympathies go out to the families and friends of those killed and injured," said Mr Straw.
"This emphasises yet again the importance of the international community taking firm action to deal with the poison of international terrorism."
The Foreign Office is
encouraging travellers to Mumbai to be especially vigilant
in public places until the situation becomes clearer. They
should also monitor events through the media.
