KABUL, Afghanistan - The International Security Assistance Force condemns the suicide bombing at a girls' school Dec. 1 in Uruzgan province that killed and injured several Afghan civilians, including children.

"During the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence a girls’ school was attacked. Violence aimed at women and girls is intolerable. Once again, the Taliban are displaying their murderous nature. ISAF condemns this attack in the strongest terms," said Gen. John R. Allen, ISAF commander.

"I send my sincere condolences to the family and friends of those killed," said Gen. Allen.
