SEOUL, Feb. 17 (Yonhap) -- South Korea said Friday that it strongly condemns a recent deadly suicide bombing at a shrine in Pakistan, vowing to work together with the international community to root out terrorism.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack on a shrine in southern Pakistan on Thursday (local time). Media reports showed that around 80 people have died with 250 others wounded in the explosion.

The foreign ministry issued a statement in which it strongly condemned the bombing, describing any terror attempt as "inhuman behavior that cannot be justified." It also vowed to keep working with the international community to root out terrorism.
