Pakistan condemns Boston bombing

- April 16, 2013 - Updated 1328 PKT - From Web Edition

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has condemned the deadly bombing which took place at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.


The Foreign Office described the bombing as a despicable act which had resulted in the loss of precious human lives. “Our condolences and prayers are with the victims and their families during this difficult time.”


The Foreign Office further hoped that the perpetrators of this barbaric act would be brought to justice.


At least three people were killed and more than 100 injured in twin explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, officials said.


Police did not immediately say whether the explosions were part of a terrorist attack, but marathon organizers said it was a twin bombing and media outlets reported that other unexploded devices had been found nearby.


The blasts left a street littered with blood and debris, as spectators screamed and fled, paramedics hauled away stretchers and police rushed in, according to witnesses, one of whom saw a man with his lower limbs blown off.
