Latin American Countries Condemn Easter Terror Attack in Pakistan

MEXICO CITY – The governments of Mexico, Panama and Ecuador all condemned on Easter Sunday the suicide attack in Lahore, Pakistan, which killed at least 69 people and injured around 290, mostly women and children.

Mexico “reiterates its total rejection of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, at the same time offers its condolences and solidarity to the people and the Government of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, as well as to the families of victims,” read a statement from the Foreign Affairs Secretariat.

Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela wrote an official tweet also condemning the incident Sunday saying, “We condemn the killing of innocent citizens in Pakistan and send our condolences to the people and Government.”

Standing in solidarity was also Ecuador, whose Foreign Affairs Minister Guillaume Long took to twitter as well expressing “Our solidarity with the people and government of Pakistan on this tragic day. Another cowardly attack that saddens us all.”

A suicide bomber detonated bombs which he was carrying in the parking lot of Gulshan Iqbal Park, near a children’s playground at around 19:00 local time (14:00 GMT) on Easter Sunday, area police spokesperson Mohamed Salim told EFE.

A splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban later claimed responsibility for the attack.
