ISAF Commander Condemns Spin Boldak Murders

KABUL, Afghanistan, March 8, 2012 — The com­man­der of the Inter­na­tion­al Secu­ri­ty Assis­tance Force in Afghanistan joined Afghan Pres­i­dent Hamid Karzai in con­demn­ing yesterday’s ter­ror­ist attack in the Spin Boldak dis­trict of Afghanistan’s Kan­da­har province that killed four peo­ple and wound­ed eight oth­ers, mil­i­tary offi­cials report­ed.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the fam­i­lies and loved ones who mourn this evening, and we wish for a quick recov­ery of those who were injured,” Marine Corps Gen. John R. Allen said after yesterday’s attack. “More inno­cent Afghans died today at the hands of the insur­gency.”

Two chil­dren and a woman were among those killed when a motor­cy­cle loaded with explo­sives det­o­nat­ed in a crowd.

“The bla­tant mur­der­ing of Afghan civil­ians must stop, and the Tal­iban lead­er­ship needs to hold their own mem­bers account­able for their actions against the inno­cent,” Allen said. ISAF ser­vice mem­bers will con­tin­ue to work with Afghan secu­ri­ty forces “to iden­ti­fy these ene­mies of the Afghan peo­ple, and hold them to account,” the gen­er­al added.
