Britain has condemned the attack on the Indian airbase in Pathankot that killed seven security personnel and injured others.

The acting high commissioner in New Delhi, Alexander Evans, said: “The UK strongly condemns the terrorist attack in Pathankot and offers condolences to the victims and their families. We are committed to working with India and other countries around the world to combat terrorism and bring the perpetrators of terrible crimes like these to justice”.

The attack put a question mark on recent initiatives by India to forge peace with Pakistan.
