We are deeply saddened by the murder of a young Afghan woman in the Taliban-controlled area of Feroz-koh city of Ghor Province.
We strongly welcome the investigation ordered by President Ashraf Ghani. The United States stands with the people of Afghanistan in condemning violence against women. We are actively involved in efforts to prevent and respond to gender-based violence in Afghanistan, as well as programs that empower women and girls.
