The Bangladeshi government Tuesday condemned the attack by the Israeli troops on the international aid flotilla transporting humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people under the Israeli blockade.

"Bangladesh is shocked and saddened at the unwarranted attack on unarmed civilians on board the Mavi Marmara on 31 May, 2010, and the resultant loss of lives," said a statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

It said that Bangladesh expresses its profound condolences and sincerest sympathy to the bereaved families, and joins in prayer for the eternal peace of the departed souls.

The Bangladeshi government also called for collective international action to end the siege immediately, and to allow the people of Palestine to return to normal life.

At least 19 people were reportedly killed and dozens injured when Israeli forces have attacked a flotilla of aid-carrying ships aiming to break the country's siege on Gaza.
