Canada condemns attacks on Israeli diplomatic targets in India, Georgia

OTTAWA - Canada is condemning today's attacks on Israeli diplomatic targets in India and Georgia.

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird calls the attacks "senseless" and is urging the Indian and Georgian authorities to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice.

In New Delhi, four people were wounded when an assailant on a motorcycle detonated a magnetic bomb that was attached to an Israeli diplomat's vehicle.

In Tbilisi, capital of the former Soviet republic of Georgia, an explosive device that had been planted on an Israeli Embassy car was defused before it could explode.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has blamed Iran for the attacks.

Iran has denied any responsibility.
