29 October 2005 – United Nations Secretary-General today condemned the series of deadly terrorist bombings that rocked the Indian capital, New Delhi, and urged the country's Government to prosecute those responsible.
A spokesman for Mr. Annan released a statement in New York saying the Secretary-General is “appalled” by the crime.

The Indian Government was urged to “bring the perpetrators of these attacks to justice as soon as possible.”
