Deploring a deadly terrorist bomb blast inside a mosque in Pakistan today, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said “no cause or motive can justify attacks on places of worship and innocent civilians." “The Secretary-General condemns this cowardly act in the strongest terms,” his spokesman said in a statement issued at UN Headquarters in New York. “He also calls for calm and restraint in the wake of this dastardly act.”
At least 19 people were killed and dozens of other people were injured when a bomb exploded inside a mosque in the eastern Pakistani city of Sialkot during Friday prayers, according to media reports.
