UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon strongly condemned on Monday the suicide bombing in front of a police station near the Red Mosque in Pakistani capital of Islamabad.

The secretary-general, who is currently in Japan attending the Group of Eight summit, "strongly condemns yesterday's suicide bombing ... which has claimed the lives of a large number of people, many of them police, and injured dozens more," said a statement issued by Ban's press office.

"There have also been reports today of a series of explosions in Karachi, that have resulted in more casualties," it said.

"The secretary-general urges all political forces to unite against the scourge of terrorism and expresses his heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and to the government and people of Pakistan," it added.
