'Delhi terror attack reminds Qeada's commitment to extremism'

"Today’s bombing in India and the tragic loss of life are graphic reminders that al-Qaeda and similar groups remain committed to murder, terror and attacking freedom across the globe," Rick Perry, also the Governor of Texas, said in a statement.

Perry, who entered the presidential race less than a month ago and has now emerged as the leading Republican candidate to challenge incumbent Barack Obama, said that the New Delhi attack is a reminder to remain vigilant.

"America must remain vigilant, and work to reinvigorate our economy so that we can remain militarily strong and uphold effective foreign policy.

"We mourn with the people of New Delhi, especially the families of those killed and injured, and to our friends and allies in India," Perry said. 11 people have died and 74 wounded in the blast out the High Court.

Congressman Pete Sessions also condemned the terrorist attack.

"I strongly condemn the devastating attack on innocent civilians in India’s capital today.
"It is my hope that those responsible for this unspeakable violence may be quickly identified to ensure that they are held accountable for their horrific actions," he said in a statement.

"I offer my sincere condolences to the families of the 11 civilians who lost their lives, and I wish a speedy recovery to the many that were injured. Today I proudly join the American people in offering support to the people of India during this time of unthinkable tragedy," Sessions said.
