New Delhi, Oct 19 (UNI) India today strongly condemned the terrorist attack on former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto in Karachi saying the spectre of terrorism confronting the region required determined action by all governments.

A spokesman of the External Affairs Ministry said in response to a question that it was ''reprehensible'' that senior political figures were targeted with loss of innocent lives.

''We strongly condemn the terrorist attack in Karachi yesterday.

It is reprehensible that senior political figures are targeted in this way with such a huge loss of innocent life. The spectre of terrorism confronting our region requires strong and determined action by all our Governments,'' the spokesman added.

The Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leader who returned home yesterday after eight years in exile, survived an assasination attempt in Karachi when two massive explosions rocked her motorcade killing at least 130 people and injuring hundreds of others.

Ms Bhutto was leading a caravan to the mausoleum of Pakistan's founder Mohammed Ali Jinnah where she was to address a rally.
