New York, July 25 (Just Earth News): United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres on Monday strongly condemned the terrorist attack in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore and called for those responsible to be brought to justice, his spokesman said.

“The Secretary-General extends his condolences to the families of the victims and wishes full recovery to those injured,” said Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesman for the Secretary-General, in a statement.

According to preliminary media reports, at least 26 people were killed in an alleged suicide bombing that targeted police officers guarding a demolition site at Kot Lakhpat's vegetable market.

The Secretary-General “supports the efforts of the Government of Pakistan to fight terrorism and violent extremism with full respect for international human rights norms and obligations,” Haq added.
