July 14, 2015

For Immediate Release

The U.S. Embassy strongly condemns yesterday’s attack on worshippers gathered for Iftar at the Grand Mosque in Baghlan province.   The attack deliberately targeting individuals praying in a mosque is abhorrent, particularly during Ramadan, a time of peace and reflection. At this time, we offer our sympathies to the people who suffered as a result of this attack.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families at this time.
