Afghan president Hamid Karzai has strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Peshawar of Pakistan that left over 90 people dead and injured more than 200 others on Wednesday, a statement released by his office said.

"Such attacks which mostly claim civilians' live expose the threat of terrorism to the region and requires collective struggle to overcome the menace," the statement received Thursday added.

In the statement, the Afghan president also expressed sympathy with the families of the victims.

Also on the same day on Wednesday, Kabul came under Taliban attacks as the insurgents stormed a UN guest house killing six international staff of the world body and fired two rockets on the city that left no casualties.
