British Foreign Minister David Miliband Thursday rang up his Indian counterpart S.M. Krishna and expressed his sympathies at the suicide car bomb attack outside the Indian embassy in Kabul.

"I condemn unreservedly the awful terrorist attack which took place in Kabul earlier today. Our thoughts and condolences are with the injured and with the families of those killed," British high commissioner Richard Stagg said in a statement.

The British envoy said that the UK foreign minister telephoned his Indian counterpart Krishna and expressed his sympathies.

A powerful suicide car bomb blast near the Indian embassy in Kabul on Thursday killed at least 12 people and injured over 90 others. No Indian was killed in the devastating bombing on the busy road outside the embassy.

Three Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel were among those injured. Afghan officials said the dead were one police officer and 11 Afghan civilians, most of whom were seeking visas for India.
