India on Wednesday strongly condemned the suicide attack in Istanbul that killed 10 people on Tuesday. "India unequivocally opposes terrorism in all its forms and expresses solidarity with the government and the people of Turkey," the external affairs ministry said in a statement. "We extend our sincere condolences to the bereaved families and wish a speedy recovery to those injured in this despicable act." At least 10 people, including nine German tourists, were killed and 15 others injured in the explosion that hit Istanbul's historic Sultanahmet Square on Tuesday. Turkey blamed terror group Islamic State (IS) for the attack.
