ISAF Commander Condemns Attack in Mehtar Lam

KABUL, Afghanistan (Sept. 3) - "Yesterday's suicide attack in Mehtar Lam demonstrates how those who claim to be the enemies of the government and the coalition are instead the enemies of all the Afghan people.

In their attack on Dr. Abdullah Laghmani of the National Directorate of Security, the insurgents killed and injured provincial officials, religious leaders and ordinary people who were meeting peacefully at their local mosque. ISAF will honor the memory of those killed in the attack by continuing to partner with the Afghan people, their army and police, to protect the innocent from the violence of the insurgents."
