U.S. Embassy Condemns Mosque Bombing in Khairo Kariz
The United States strongly condemns the bombing of a mosque that took place earlier today in the Khairo Kariz area of Uruzgan province, killing Imam Mawlawi Taj Mohammad and a number of other innocent civilians during the Morning Prayer. This reprehensible attack, committed during the holy month of Ramazan, continues to demonstrate that the insurgents have no respect for the lives of innocent Afghans.
The United States mourns the loss of life in Khairo Kariz, and our sympathies go out to the victims, their families and community. We remain undeterred in standing with the Afghan people against the scourge of international terrorism.
