"Our government's firm stance is that terror should be eradicated as an inhumane crime that can be justified under no circumstances," it said.

Seoul will continue to participate in the global fight against terrorism, it added.

At least 10 people were killed and 65 others injured in a suicide car bombing against the General Santander police academy in Bogota, Colombia's capital city, on Thursday (local time). (Yonhap)
