North Korea condemns terror attacks in India

india Updated: Nov 29, 2008 10:05 IST

North Korea has condemned the attacks in India's financial capital that have claimed more than 150 lives. Kim Yong Nam, Pyongyang's No. 2 leader and ceremonial head of state, has expressed deep condolences for the victims of the attacks in Mumbai and their families, according to a Friday report by the North's official Korean Central News Agency.

The violence began late Wednesday when gunmen attacked 10 sites across the city.

KCNA says Kim sent a message to India's president saying North Korea opposes "all forms of terrorism" and "strongly condemns this inhuman terrorist deed."

The United States removed North Korea from a list of states that sponsor terrorism in October after Pyongyang relented on nuclear inspection demands.
