U.S. Embassy Statement on Today’s Attack in Kabul (April 19, 2016)

April 19, 2016

Today Kabul suffered a deadly attack for which the Taliban claimed credit, underscoring the harm that the Taliban continues to inflict on the Afghan people.  The U.S. Embassy condemns this senseless act of violence.   Afghanistan deserves peace and security, not attacks that victimize parents taking their children to school, workers on their morning commute, and people who have stepped forward to help defend their fellow citizens.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families and friends of those affected.  We stand with the people of Afghanistan and we will continue to advocate for the Afghan government’s peace process that will bring an end once and for all to callous attacks against its people.
