World condemns Delhi terror attack

New Delhi: The world community today condemned the terror attack at the Delhi High Court that caused heavy casualties with the US offering every possible assistance to help bring the perpetrators of the heinous crime to justice.

"On behalf of all Americans, I extend deep condolences to the Government of India and the families of those harmed in this morning`s attack on the New Delhi High Court. Terrorism is a crime that affects us all.

In a statement, he said the US remains shoulder to shoulder with India in the fight against terror, and will provide whatever assistance possible to help bring the perpetrators of this heinous crime to justice.

"We extend our sympathy and concern to the government and people of India at this time. Our thoughts are with the families of the innocent people who have been killed, and with those injured by the blast. The Indian government and people have Australia`s full support as they continue to combat terrorism," according to a statement issued by Australian High Commission here.
