7th September 2011, Comments 0 comments

French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Wednesday condemned the deadly bomb attack on New Delhi's High Court as an "odious terrorist attack" and sent his condolences to victims' relatives.

"France is at the side of India in this painful ordeal," he said in a statement.

The powerful bomb, hidden in a briefcase, ripped through a busy crowd outside the court, killing at least 11 people and wounding dozens more.

It was the first major attack on Indian soil since triple blasts in Mumbai on July 13 killed 26 people.
