Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has condemned a terror attack in India that killed 44 police officers on a bus in the Kashmir region.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has condemned a "heinous" terror attack that killed 44 people in an Indian police convoy.

The Pakistan-based Islamist militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for Thursday's attack in Kashmir, where a suicide bomber rammed a car into a police bus.

"We convey our deepest condolences to the families of the victims, and all those injured. Our thoughts are with my friend Prime Minister @narendramodi and the Indian people," Mr Morrison tweeted on Friday.
