Putin sends condolences to Indian leaders over Delhi attacks


MOSCOW, October 30 (RIA Novosti) - Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a telegram to Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President APJ Abdul Kalam Sunday conveying his condolences over Saturday's attacks in crowded areas of India's capital Delhi, in which three powerful blasts left around 60 people dead. The president called the attacks "pointless and inhuman acts of terrorism."

"Terrorists have again shown that nothing to them is sacred, that they are driven entirely by blind malice and hatred to all humanity," he said.

The president said his country shared the grief of the Indian people.

The attacks took place a few days before major Hindu and Muslim festivals, while crowds did their pre-holiday shopping.
