Delhi blast: US offers assistance to India

“On behalf of all Americans, I extend deep condolences to the government of India and the families of those harmed in this morning’s attacks on the New Delhi High Court,” US Chargé d’Affaires Peter Burleigh said in a statement.

“Terrorism is a crime that affects us all. Bombings like today’s demonstrate that our shared struggle continues against those who would commit such atrocities,” he said. “The US remains shoulder to shoulder with India in the fight against terror, and will provide whatever assistance possible to help bring the perpetrators of this heinous crime to justice,” he added.

The blast outside the Delhi High Court left 11 dead and 76 injured. Subsequently, Delhi was put on high alert with security beefed up across the city.
