India on Thursday strongly condemned the "barbaric terrorist attack"on a university campus in northeastern Kenya in which 70 people were killed.
Indian external affairs ministry said in a statement that India stands in solidarity and sympathy with the bereaved families and the injured, and "convey our heart-felt condolences to the government and people of Kenya". "This outrageous terrorist act is yet another reminder that the menace of terrorism continues to threaten us all and the international community needs to further strengthen its fight against terrorism in all its forms and manifestations," the statement said.
At least 70 people were killed and 79 injured by armed assailants who forced their way into a university in northeastern Kenya and opened fire at students on Thursday.
The Al Shabaab terror group, which has links to the Al Qaida terror network, has claimed responsibility.
