New Delhi: The world community on Wednesday 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. Bombings like today`s
demonstrate that our shared struggle continues against those
who would commit such atrocities," US Charge d’ Affaires Peter
Burleigh said.
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.
"Unreservedly" condemning the bombing, a statement from
the Australian Prime Minister`s office said, "This act of
senseless violence, directed at one of the institutions of
government, appears to have been planned to cause a high
number of casualties among the general public.

"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.

Israel also condemned the blast with its visiting
Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov expressing shock and dismay
over the vicious terror attack and conveyed his country`s
condolences to the bereaved families.
