Putin urged to condemn terror attacks in London

Russian President Vladimir Putin taking part in G8 summit in Gleneagles condemned acts of terror in London.

Vladimir Putin said Thursday that terror attacks the world over demand universal condemnation and unity, according to a Kremlin spokesman.

Putin expressed Russia's condolences to British Prime Minister Tony Blair and said his country was showing solidarity with Britain following Thursday's attacks in London.

"Putin underlined that no matter where such inhuman crimes occur - in London, New York, Moscow or other countries of the world - they demand unconditional condemnation and the unity of all civilized countries in the struggle against international terror," Alexei Gromov said.

Earlier today Al-Qaida claimed responsibility for blasts in London. According to the German Spiegel, "Secret organization - al-Qaida in Europe" called the Islamic community to free themselves in a statement published on an Islamists' site.

According to London police, some 190 people were being treated at hospitals for injuries. A senior police official said about 150 were seriously hurt.

Prime Minister Tony Blair has admitted that the blasts were terrorist attacks, calling them "barbaric", stating that "it's important however that those engaged in terrorism realise that our determination to defend our values and way of life is greater than their determination to cause death and destruction to innocent people."

Representatives of the North Korean administration issued a statement saying that the United States and its allies have lost the "political and military confrontation" to the DPRK
