The UN Security Council on Monday strongly condemned last week's suicide attack on Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto's homecoming procession as a "heinous act of terrorism" and urged all countries to cooperate in bringing the perpetrators to justice. In a statement read at a formal meeting, the council reiterated its determination to combat all forms of terrorism and reaffirmed that terrorism constitutes "one of the most serious threats to international peace and security."
