UK condemns deadly Kabul suicide bombing
British Foreign Secretary describes use of ambulance to target civilians as ‘despicable’

By Ahmet Gurhan Kartal

LONDON (AA) - The U.K. has condemned the deadly bomb attack by the Taliban in the Afghanistan’s capital Kabul that claimed more than 100 lives on Saturday.

“I am shocked and appalled by yesterday’s horrific attack in Kabul and condemn it in the strongest possible terms,” British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said on Sunday.

Describing the use of an ambulance to target civilians as “despicable”, Johnson said: “Once again, so many innocent Afghan lives lost and so many people’s lives affected.”

A powerful suicide car bombing at the entrance of the Afghan Interior Ministry killed 103 people and injured more than 230 others, according to officials.

Johnson offered his “heartfelt condolences” to the victims and the families.

“The U.K. stands resolutely with Afghanistan against terrorism and calls for those responsible to be brought to justice,” he said.

Johnson underlined that the U.K. is “firmly committed to supporting Afghan efforts to bring peace to Afghanistan.”

“Yesterday’s attack makes it all the more crucial that all parties intensify efforts to pursue dialog.

“Regional and international partners must be united in support of this goal. The Afghan people deserve peace,” he added.

Afghanistan on Sunday declared a day of mourning following yesterday’s brazen suicide car bombing.
