Manmohan Singh New Delhi, Sep 7 (IANS) Terming Wednesday’s blast in Delhi a “heinous terrorist attack”, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said France is on India’s side in fighting the “barbaric scourge” of terror.

“At a time when New Delhi has once again been struck by a heinous terrorist attack claiming tens of innocent victims, I would like to express my complete solidarity and heartfelt condolences on behalf of France and myself,” Sarkozy said in a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

“France is at India’s side during this distressing ordeal and I am more determined than ever to fight this barbaric scourge together. The combat against terrorism unites us and we shall always pursue our efforts relentlessly,” he said in a statement that was issued here.

“Please accept, Prime Minister, the assurances of my highest consideration and friendship,” Sarkozy said.

A powerful explosion ripped through the workday bustle at the Delhi High Court Wednesday, killing 11 people and injuring 76 in India’s third worst bombing since the November 2008 Mumbai attack.
