U.S. Embassy Statement on June 5 Attacks (June 6, 2016)

June 6, 2016

The U.S. Embassy condemns yesterday’s attacks on justice workers in Logar, the murder of Parliamentarian Sher Wali Wardak, and violence in Helmand that took the life of American photojournalist David Gilkey and Afghan journalist Zabihulla Tamanna.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the grief-stricken families and colleagues of those who died yesterday, and with all Afghans who suffer daily the ravages of senseless violence.
