Washington DC [USA], Nov 21 (ANI): The United States of America condemned the Kabul suicide bombing which killed as many as 50 people and injured several others who were part of a large gathering assembled to mark Prophet Mohammad's birth anniversary.
The US also extended condolences to the families of the victims. "We send our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims. This shameless act comes as the Afghan people attempt to celebrate Milad-un-Nabi in peace, and reveals the cowardice and cruelty of those who perpetuate violence in Afghanistan," read the press release from US Department of State.
The statement further asserted that the US is committed to peace and stability in Afghanistan, and stands by the people of Kabul country who "want peace and a future free from these horrific acts of violence".
