KABUL, Afghanistan – ISAF vehemently protests the senseless act that occurred in Kabul on the Mujahadin parade this morning. The Afghan military members participating in this event, like us, are committed to bringing security and stability to the people of Afghanistan.

“Acts such as this, which offer nothing but violence and death, will not deter us in our commitment to create a better Afghanistan,” said Brig. Gen Carlos Branco, ISAF spokesperson. “ISAF remains steadfast in its support for the government and, in particular, our colleagues in the Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police. We stand together and will continue to give our full support to this critical mission.

Afghan authorities are leading an investigation into this incident.
