NCA Vehemently Condemns Terrorist Attack on International Restaurant in Kabul

The National Coalition of Afghanistan (NCA) vehemently condemns yesterday's barbaric and senseless terrorist attack on a popular restaurant in the Wazir Akbar Khan district in Kabul, which tragically took the lives of at least 14 people, including Afghan civilians and mainly foreign nationals. 

By engaging in such atrocious and cowardly acts, which are against all human and Islamic values, insurgents continue to demonstrate their ruthless and evil nature, showing total disregard for innocent human lives. Initial reports indicate that several U.N. staff, including the IMF mission chief in Afghanistan, were also sadly among the victims. The NCA once again calls for an immediate end to all such attacks, which could never undermine Afghanistan's path towards stability and prosperity.

The National Coalition of Afghanistan extends its deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims, as well as to those countries whose nationals have been victims of this reprehensible attack. The NCA also wishes for the speedy recovery of those injured.
