The senior United Nations envoy for the Middle East peace process, Terje Roed-Larsen, strongly condemned today's suicide bombing attack in the Israeli town of Kfar Sava, which left one person dead another at least another 13 people wounded, several seriously.

Mr. Roed-Larsen, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, called the terror attack "outrageous and cowardly" and expressed his sincere condolences to the victims' families.

He also asked that the Palestinian Authority bring to justice the perpetrators of the attack and that it take "immediate steps to delegitimize such heinous attacks that produce nothing but misery and fear."
