Sri Lanka condemns the terrorist attack on a bus in Karachi

Sri Lanka denounces in the strongest terms, today’s terrorist attack on a bus in Karachi, killing innocent civilians and injuring many.

Firing on men, women and children while they were on their way to participate in religious observances displays a brutality of unimaginable proportions.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this deplorable violence.  We stand firmly with the Government and people of Pakistan in their hour of grief and wish those who were injured, a quick recovery.

Sri Lanka condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and expresses support for all efforts to combat this scourge.
