U.S. Embassy Statement on Bombing in Kabul

May 18, 2010

The United States strongly condemns the bombing that occurred this morning along Darulaman Road in Kabul, tragically killing and wounding innocent Afghan civilians. This deplorable act of violence also took the lives of at least six international service members and wounded several more.

The Taliban have claimed responsibility for this attack and once again demonstrated their callous disregard for the wellbeing of the Afghan people. The United States remains undeterred in standing with the people of Afghanistan against the scourge of terrorism. Our thoughts and deep sympathies are with the families affected by today’s bombing.
