He assured that the perpetrators would be brought to book.

My heart is torn to shreds and I deeply feel the pain of these poor families.

We will do everything humanly possible to ensure that any person or group of persons found culpable in this attack is decisively dealt with.

He, however, called for calm, urging residents of the community to be law abiding and security conscious.
