US strongly condemns Kabul mosque bombing

Press Trust of India  |  Washington 

Strongly condemning the terrorist attack at a mosque in Kabul, the US today said it remains committed to the people of Afghanistan on building a more stable, prosperous and peaceful country.

"The US strongly condemns the terrorist attack today at the Baqir-ul-Olum Mosque in Kabul, Afghanistan, which killed dozens of innocent civilians, many of them worshipers, and wounded more than 40," said Ned Price, spokesman of the National Security Council at the White House.

This cowardly attack was clearly intended to stoke sectarian tensions in Afghanistan, he said.

"We extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this attack and fully support efforts to bring those responsible to justice," he added.

"The United States and our international partners remain committed to the people and Government of Afghanistan as we work together to build a more stable and prosperous peaceful Afghanistan," Price said.
