    "It is with great sorrow that I was informed about the bomb attacks on Boston's Marathon, which resulted in the loss of human lives and many injuries. Such heinous actions, whose targets are innocent citizens, are absolutely condemnable.

    "On behalf of the Greek government and the Greek citizens, who have suffered similar cowardly acts of violence, I want to extend my deepest, heartfelt condolences to the American people and my sincere sympathy to the families of the victims," the premier's message said.

    Messages of condolences were also sent by Foreign Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos and Greek parties.

    Opposition Communist Party of Greece (KKE) also condemned the bomb attacks in Boston, which killed three people and injured dozens and expressed solidarity with the victims' families, underlining that it is important to find out who is behind the attacks.
