US secretary of state Hillary Clinton on Monday strongly condemned the bombing on Israeli diplomatic vehicles in India and attempted attack on the Israeli diplomatic personnel in Georgia.

"I condemn in the strongest possible terms the bombing of an Israeli diplomatic vehicle in India and the attempted attack on Israeli embassy personnel in Georgia. The scourge of terrorism is an affront to the entire international community," Clinton said in a statement.

"The United States places a high priority on the safety and security of diplomatic personnel around the world and we stand ready to assist with any investigation of these cowardly actions," she said.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the injured personnel in New Delhi and their loved ones," she said.

Clinton's statement came hours after an Israeli embassy car went up in flames following an explosion in New Delhi and a second bomb was safely defused in Georgia's capital Tbilisi.
