U.S. Embassy Statement on Kabul Mosque Attack (November 21, 2016)

November 21, 2016

We strongly condemn today’s attack on worshippers at the Baqir-ul-Olum mosque in Kabul and extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this senseless and cowardly act.

This attack is another demonstration of contempt for religious tolerance and communal harmony by the enemies of peace and progress in Afghanistan.  As demonstrated at last month’s Brussels Donor Conference, the United States and our international partners remain committed to standing with the people of Afghanistan in working toward a peaceful and prosperous future.
