Pakistan has strongly condemned the heinous terrorist attack on Guzargah Mosque in Herat, Afghanistan in which several people died while others sustained injuries.
“The Government and people of Pakistan extend deepest sympathies and sincere condolences to the bereaved families, and pray for the early recovery of those injured”, a Foreign Office statement issued here said.
“Pakistan condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. The people of Pakistan stand with their Afghan brothers and sisters in this time of sorrow and grief,” it added.
On Friday, a suicide bomber struck one of the biggest mosques in western Afghanistan, killing at least 18 people, including an influential imam who earlier this year called for those who commit "the smallest act" against the government to be beheaded.
Images posted on Twitter showed what appeared to be blood-stained bodies scattered around the compound of Gazargah Mosque in Herat.
