New Delhi: India will not be intimidated by the criminal killers who perpetrated the attack on the Indian embassy in Kabul and will take all steps to protect Indians, Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor affirmed on Thursday.

"India will not be intimidated by these criminal killers. We will take all steps necessary to protect Indian lives and installations in Afghanistan," Tharoor said in a tweet posted on the social networking site Twitter.

Tharoor also conveyed India's condolences for the around 12 Afghans who died in the suicide bombing outside the Indian mission in Kabul on Thursday morning.

"Tragic news from Kabul of another bomb attack near our embassy. Indians safe (three lightly injured) but many Afghan casualties. Our condolences," Tharoor said, tweeting from the United Arab Emirates where he is currently on an official visit to promote bilateral ties.

A powerful suicide car bomb blast near the Indian embassy in Kabul on Thursday killed at least 12 people and injured over 90 others. No Indian was killed in the devastating bombing on the busy road outside the embassy. Afghan officials said the dead were one police officer and 11 Afghan civilians, most of whom were seeking Indian visas.
