Statement on the Murder of Personnel at the CURE International Hospital
The U.S. Embassy condemns the deplorable act of violence at the CURE International Hospital of Kabul today, which resulted in the deaths of three American citizens. Those killed in the attack were humanitarian workers dedicated to improving the lives of Afghans by providing a full range of medical services including reconstructive surgery to children with physical disabilities and pre- and post-natal care for mothers. This act of terror has deprived the citizens of Afghanistan of valuable medical expertise.
We offer our condolences and sympathy to the families of those who lost their lives or were injured while selflessly working towards a better future for the people of Afghanistan.
