United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan strongly condemned today what he called a senseless terrorist bombing at a shrine in Islamabad, Pakistan, that reportedly killed at least 20 people and injured many more.
Mr. Annan was “outraged by the repeated targeting of civilians at their place of worship,” his spokesman said in a statement.
“The Secretary-General calls on authorities to spare no effort to bring those responsible to justice, and he appeals for calm on the part of all Pakistanis. His heart goes out to the bereaved families and to those injured in the attack,” the spokesman said.
