President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi Wednesday condemned the terror attack on a French satirical magazine that left at least 11 people dead.

Expressing anguish over the loss of innocent lives, Mukherjee said: "Terror and violence have no place in any corner of the world. The world community must unite to root out terror from every country and society."

The president conveyed his condolences to the families of the bereaved and prayers for speedy recovery of the injured.

Modi described the attack as "condemnable and despicable".

"Our solidarity with the people of France. My thoughts are with families of those who lost their lives," Modi tweeted.
