New York, Oct 24 (IBNS): United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned Friday's bombing of a procession of worshippers marking the Shia religious holiday of Ashura in Jacobabad, and the recent terrorist attacks in the Pakistani provinces of Balochistan and Sindh.

“The Secretary-General reiterates that nothing justifies terrorism. He urges the Government of Pakistan to take all necessary measures to bring to justice the perpetrators of these despicable acts and to do its utmost to protect its citizens, including all minorities,” said a statement issued by his spokesperson in New York.

The statement added that the attacks were carried out during the holy month of Muharram and have reportedly left over 40 dead, including many children.

The Secretary-General extended his condolences to the families of the victims and wishes the injured a swift recovery.
