United States Condemns Bombings in New Delhi


United States Condemns Bombings in New Delhi


Secretary Condoleezza Rice
Washington, DC
October 29, 2005


The United States condemns the multiple terror attacks in New Delhi, India, which have killed more than fifty and wounded many more. These acts are made more heinous in that they deliberately targeted innocent civilians preparing for holiday celebrations. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims, and we wish a quick recovery to those injured.

Today is another sad reminder that terror knows no borders and respects no religion. Fighting terror is our common struggle, and we stand with the people of India as they bring to justice those responsible for these cowardly acts.
