The European Union (EU) on Monday condemned the latest terror attack in Piliyandala which killed 26 people and wounded many others last Friday.
"I firmly condemn this new indiscriminate terrorist attack against innocent people," Benita Ferrero-Waldner, European Commissioner for External relations and European Neighborhood Policy, said in a statement.
The commissioner said she was "profoundly shocked" by the horrific attack on civilians in a bus.
"This is totally unacceptable and cannot be justified under any circumstances," she stressed.
"My thoughts are with the families who have lost loved ones and I wish a speedy recovery to those injured in this attack," she added.
