KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): The Meshrano Jirgainfo-icon -- or upper house of parliament -- on Wednesday condemned in the strongest terms the suicide attack on the Supreme Court.

A Talibaninfo-icon suicide bomber blew himself up at the entrance to the Supreme Court in the nation’s heavily-fortified capital on Tuesday, killing 17 civilians and wounding 39 others.

There is no justification for such an attack on civilians, including womeninfo-icon and children, a statement from the Senate said. The enemies of Afghanistaninfo-icon launched such attacks at the behest of outsiders, he alleged.

The Meshrano Jirga asked Muslim worldinfo-icon to find an effective way of preventing such plots against the Afghan nation, the statement added.
