Islamabad, 20 September 2015 – “On behalf of the American Embassy community in Pakistan, I extend my deepest sympathies and condolences to the victims and families of the victims of today’s heinous attack in Badaber. The United States strongly condemns this senseless and inhumane act that took numerous lives, include those of 16 people inside a mosque while they were praying.
The United States stands with Pakistan in its struggle against terrorism and violent extremism. Few countries are as affected as Pakistan by the cruel violence perpetrated by terrorists. The United States will continue to work closely with Pakistan to secure peace and stability in the country and in the region.”
– U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan Richard G. Olson
