Urging action against terrorist attacks, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan today strongly condemned the explosion in Pakistan which reportedly left dozens of people dead and many more wounded.

A statement issued by Mr. Annan's spokesman on the bombing that took place in the city of Multan said the Secretary-General "reiterates that all terrorist acts are utterly unacceptable, and expresses his serious concern about the dangers of sectarian violence."

The Secretary-General "urges the authorities to take effective action against such acts and hopes that community and religious leaders will exercise their influence by calling for restraint and calm," the statement said.
