New Delhi, Sep 7 (IANS) Saying it stood “shoulder-to-shoulder” with India in the fight against terror, the US Wednesday condemned the bomb blast outside the Delhi High Court that claimed 11 lives and offered its assistance in bringing the perpetrators of the crime to justice.

“The US remains shoulder-to-shoulder with India in the fight against terror, and will provide whatever assistance possible to help bring the perpetrators of this heinous crime to justice,” United States Charge d’Affaires Peter Burleigh said in a statement.

“Terrorism is a crime that affects us all. Bombings like today’s demonstrate that our shared struggle continues against those who would commit such atrocities,” he added.

“On behalf of all Americans, I extend deep condolences to the government of India and the families of those harmed in this morning’s attacks on the New Delhi High Court,” Burleigh said.
