India: Ban Deplores Bomb Attacks Against Civilians

India: Ban deplores recent string of bomb attacks against civilians

27 September 2008 – Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today voiced his deep concern over recent bombings in Indian cities that target civilian areas, after a blast today at a market in the capital, Delhi, killed a 13-year-old boy and injured many others.

Mr. Ban “strongly condemns these reprehensible acts that have caused the death and injury of many civilians and calls for the perpetrators to be brought to justice,” according to a statement issued by his spokesperson.

Further, he “reiterates his consistent position that no cause or grievance can justify the resort to terrorism.”

In the statement, the Secretary-General also extended his sympathies to the families of those killed and injured, as well as to the Government and people of India.
