U.S. Embassy Condemns Attack on CARE International (September 6, 2016)

September 6, 2016

We strongly condemn today’s deadly attack on the offices of CARE International in Kabul.  The men and women of CARE International help to build a brighter future for Afghanistan.  Their efforts save lives, empower women, mitigate poverty, and improve the opportunities of all Afghans.

We offer our condolences to the victims and families of those affected by this attack, and our thoughts and prayers are with them.  We applaud the courage and bravery of our partners in the Afghan security forces who rescued 42 civilians and neutralized the attackers.

The United States remains committed to working with the international community and our Afghan partners to build on the advances the people of Afghanistan have made over the last 15 years.
