ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has strongly denounced the bomb blast that killed at least 55 people in Afghanistan’s Kunduz city during Friday prayers.
“We are deeply grieved at the dastardly terrorist attack on a mosque today in Kunduz province of Afghanistan which has reportedly resulted in the loss of innumerable precious lives and injuries to many others,” a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
“The government and people of Pakistan stand in solidarity with their Afghan brethren. We convey our deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their dear ones and wish early recovery to the injured,” the statement read.
“We reiterate our unequivocal condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.”
Earlier today, a suicide bomb attack on worshippers at a mosque in the Afghan city of Kunduz killed at least 55 people, in the bloodiest assault since US forces left the country.
