Thu, May 1, 2014, 04:46 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May01, Colombo: The Sri Lankan government today strongly condemned the twin blasts that took place this morning at the Chennai Central Railway Station on a train that had arrived from Bengaluru.

One woman was killed and nine others received injuries when two separate explosions took place under passenger seats in two carriages of the train travelling from Bangalore in the south to Guwahati in the north-east.

"The people of Sri Lanka share the pain and anguish of the Indian people over this wanton act of violence targeting innocent civilians," Sri Lanka's Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement.

"The Government and the people of Sri Lanka offer their deep condolences to the Government and the people of India, particularly the bereaved family, and wish a speedy recovery for those who have been injured in this cowardly attack."
