Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday said he was "horrified" to know of the death of Indian embassy personnel in the "dastardly terror attack" on the Indian mission in Kabul and said it must be "condemned in the strongest terms possible".

In a statement from on board Air India One, where he got the information about the attack while flying from New Delhi to Sapporo, the prime minister said: "Those responsible directly or indirectly, for this terrorist attack are no better than the worst criminals."

"We have lost Indians who were helping their Afghan brothers to rebuild their lives and country. That endeavour must continue with renewed commitment," the prime minister said soon after landing in Sapporo, to attend the G8 and O5 outreach meetings between the world's industrialised nations and emerging economies.
