The European Union on Sunday condemned the blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad which killed more than 45 people and left over 170 injured and asserted that it will fight terror alongside India.

"The Presidency of the Council of European Union presents its deepest condolences to India, its government and its people, as well as to the victims and their families," the EU said in a statement in New Delhi.

The union also condemned the "unacceptable" attacks and expressed its solidarity with India.

It reaffirmed that it will fight the scourge of terrorism alongside India, the statement said.

Terror struck Ahmedabad yesterday when 16 coordinated serial blasts ripped through the city killing 38 people and injuring 162 sending a wave of panic, a day after multiple explosions rocked Bangalore. The Ahmedabad toll has reached 45 on Sunday.

A string of nine synchronised low-intensity bomb blasts rocked Bangalore Friday, leaving two killed and injuring 12 others.
