U.S. Embassy Condemns Attack on American University Afghanistan (August 25, 2016)

August 25, 2016

We condemn yesterday’s heinous attack on the American University Afghanistan in Kabul. The targeting of Afghan students and university staff who are working to improve the future of Afghanistan is a cruel and cowardly act.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with those killed and injured, as well as with the victims’ families, colleagues, and friends,” said U.S. Ambassador P. Michael McKinley. “We remain strongly committed to the people of Afghanistan who are dedicated to establishing lasting peace and security and building the brightest possible future for their children.”

The U.S. Embassy stands ready to assist Afghan authorities with their continuing investigation in bringing those responsible to justice.
