News: ISAF condemns attack

Courtesy Story

KABUL, Afghanistan – The International Security Assistance Force strongly condemns the Jan. 6 insurgent attack in Spin Boldak, Kandahar which killed and injured several innocent civilians.

At least one suicide bomber attacked a government building near the district center, killing and injuring several Afghan civilians.

"The enemies of peace committed another ruthless act of violence today," said Gen. John R. Allen, the ISAF commander. "This is yet another brutal example of the insurgency's total disregard for innocent civilians and the safety of the Afghan people."

In 2012 the insurgency killed or injured more than 3,400 Afghan civilians, mostly by IEDs and suicide bombs.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of those killed or injured in today's attack," Allen said.
