Statement Condemning the Terrorist Attack in Kunar Province (February 27, 2016)

February 27, 2016

The U.S. Embassy emphatically condemns the terrorist attack in Kunar Province today that claimed the lives of more than a dozen innocent civilians, including children, and wounded many more.  The Afghan people deserve peace and security, not attacks like this one against innocent civilians.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the victims.  We continue to advocate for a peace process that will bring an end once and for all to callous attacks against civilians.
