Our hearts go out to all those affected by today’s earthquake, in Afghanistan and throughout the region.  We applaud the efforts of those who are working to bring relief to those in need.  Our humanitarian partners are joining in that effort, and we stand ready to do more should the Afghan government request our assistance.  We extend our deepest condolences to those who lost loved ones, and our sympathies to those who have lost property or suffered injuries.
