Appalled by Sunday’s grenade attack on a Christian church in Islamabad that had left several people dead and many wounded, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan strongly condemned the bombing as a “vicious act of terrorism.”

A spokesperson for Mr. Annan said today that the heartless and indiscriminate killing of innocent worshipers was a “crime against humanity and religion.”

“The Secretary-General offers his deepest condolences to the bereaved families of the victims,” the spokesperson said in a statement released at UN Headquarters in New York.
