Mexico's government condemned a terrorist attack in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore killed 65 people and injured over 300 people.

“Mexico reiterates its total rejection to terrorism and expresses its condolences and solidarity with the people and the government of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and with the families of the victims,” Mexico's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a press release.

Mexico's President Enrique Peña Nieto also condemned the attack on his Twitter account. 

The attack, carried out by a suicide bomber at Gulshan-e-Iqbal park, was claimed by the Jamaat-ul-Ahrar faction of the Pakistani Taliban.

The park was crowded with Christians celebrating Easter. Ahsanullah Ahsan, spokesman for Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, told the Associated Press Sunday that a suicide bomber with the faction deliberately targeted the Christian community. He warned that more attacks would follow.
