Washington Jun 3 (UNI) The Bush Administration ''condemned'' yesterday's ''terrorist attack'' against the Danish Embassy in Islamabad and pledged full support to Pakistan in the fight against terrorism.

''There is no justification for violence targeting innocent lives, and we stand with our friends in both countries in our common fight against terrorism,'' State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said in a statement yesterday.

As many as six people were killed in the explosion and dozens of others were wounded weeks after al-Qaida issued threats against Denmark over the reprinting of a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad, it said.

The US extended its condolences to the families of the victims and the people of Denmark and Pakistan.
