attack in a letter to Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta. “I was deeply shocked and saddened by the brutal terror attack yesterday... This incident is a stark reminder that the persisting menace of terrorism remains a formidable challenge that calls for a concerted and sustained response from the global community. India condemns in the strongest terms this heinous and senseless assault, which has snuffed out so many innocent lives, including nationals of both our countries,” said Singh.
The Kenyan High Commissioner to India, Florence Imisa Weche, offered her condolences for the loss of Indian lives. “If the Indian government asks for assistance, we are ready to help,” she said.
Sources said senior officers of the Indian mission, including High Commissioner Sibabrata Tripathi, visited the two major medical facilities that received causalities during the day — Aga Khan University Hospital and M P Shah Hospital.
“Spoke to India’s high commissioner to Kenya & spoke to people of the Indian community there over the unfortunate attack in Nairobi. Touching to know of a hospital in Nairobi built by the Indian community that is helping during this crisis,” tweeted Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
