The Indonesian Government has condemned a deadly attack by Taliban gunmen on a school owned by the Pakistani army in Peshawar city on Tuesday, killing at least 126 people and injuring 122 others.

The Indonesian Foreign Ministry's statement made available to Antara Wednesday morning described the killing as "an inhuman act" that could not be tolerated for any reason.

Registering its deepest concern and condolences over the deaths of the victims, including children, in the attack, the Indonesian government expressed its support and solidarity for the people and government of Pakistan at this difficult time.

No Indonesians fell victim to the attack but all Indonesians in Pakistan should nonetheless remain alert and take a good care of their safety, the Foreign Ministry said.

The Associated Press reported that in the deadliest slughter of innocents in Pakistan in years, Taliban gunmen, who broke into the school, killed at least 141 students -- almost all of them students -- before government troops ended the siege. (hhr)
