Pakistan strongly condemned multiple attacks in New Delhi Saturday as "terrorism."
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement in Islamabad denouncing the attacks as "barbaric."
"Pakistan strongly condemns the terrorist attacks in New Delhi, which have resulted in the loss of a number of innocent lives. The attack in a crowded market place is a criminal act of terrorism. The people and government of Pakistan are shocked at this barbaric act and express deep sympathy with the families of the victims," the statement said.
The initial blast took place just before 6 p.m. in the main Paharganj market, when it was crowded with shoppers ahead of a major Hindu festival next week, fire department officials said. Minutes later, two more blasts shook the city. At least 60 people have been wounded, officials said.
