"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the Tunisians and tourists of different nationalities who lost their lives. We offer our sincere wishes for the speedy recovery of the injured," he said.

An Islamic State (ISIS) suicide bomber struck a Shiite mosque in the Kuwaiti capital during Friday prayers, killing 27 people and injuring 227.

In separate messages to Beji Caid Essebsi, President Republic of Tunisia and Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Amir of the State of Kuwait, Mukherjee prayed for the peace and prosperity of the people of both the nations.
