Britain has strongly condemned the serial blasts in Assam, which killed at least 66 people and injured 470 others, describing it as a "terrible reminder of the threat from violent extremism".

"Thursday's bomb attacks in Assam, North East India, are a terrible reminder of the threat from violent extremism. I condemn unreservedly all such acts of terrorism," British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said in a statement on Thursday night.

He said "my thoughts are with the victims of the attacks, and with their families. The UK and India will continue to work closely together to counter the shared threat from terrorism."
