U.S. Embassy Kabul Condemns Terrorist Attack in Nangarhar Province

The United States strongly condemns the series of attacks today in Nangarhar province which took the lives of many Afghans, including children.  These attacks, several of which took place near girls’ schools, are shocking in their disregard for innocent life.  We extend our deepest condolences to the families, friends, and classmates of all the victims.

We stand with the people and government of Afghanistan in their fight against terrorism and we remain steadfast in our commitment to working with our Afghan partners to support the cause of peace.
