Washington, May 15: The Bush Administration has expressed ''full confidence'' in the Indian government's ability to provide security to its people and bring to book those responsible for the Tuesday's terrorist attacks in Jaipur. ''However, as we've seen, there are groups out there or individuals out there intent on committing terrorist acts,'' State Department's Deputy Spokesman Tom Casey said yesterday in reply to a question.

He also referred to the State Department's statement in which it had ''condemned terrorist attacks.'' Casey said, ''there's certainly no justification for it (such attacks) and we (the US) will continue to work with the Indian government, as we do with other partners around the world, to try and help prevent these kinds of attacks and bring those responsible to justice.'' However, he said, ''at this moment, I don't think we -- and we certainly haven't heard from the Indians that they have any definitive conclusion on who was responsible for these attacks.

Certainly, we hope that those who are responsible can be identified and again brought to justice.'' Meanwhile, the Indian-American community and the US India Political Action Committee (USINPAC) condemned the ''deadliest bomb attacks in India in nearly two years.'' ''Our heartfelt sympathies go out to the families of the victims and we hope that the authorities are able to bring the perpetrators of these attacks to justice as soon as possible,'' said USINPAC Chairman Sanjay Puri.
