Ban’s spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters Monday, “The Secretary-General condemns in the strongest terms the terrorist attack” that took place Saturday on the Pakistani side of the Wagah border crossing with India.

“The Secretary-General,” he added, “urges the Pakistani authorities to bring those responsible to justice.”

Dujarric said Ban conveyed his condolences to the families of the victims and to the people and government of Pakistan and wished the wounded a quick recovery.

At least 60 people were killed and more than 120 injured when a young suicide bomber wearing a suicide vest blew himself up near the Wagah border Saturday evening as people began dispersing after watching the ceremony to lower the flags of the two countries at the frontier post.

  1. The message to Pakistan to act against terrorists is appropriate & timely. A similar message should be sent to India to warn its army from killing civilians on a continuous basis-sometimes under the garb of mistaken identity-sometimes under collateral damage-sometimes under cross firing etc. etc.
