Rep. Waters Statement on the Terrorist Bombing in Afghanistan

Washington, D.C. -- Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee, released the following statement today in response to the terrorist attack in Kabul, Afghanistan:

“I was devastated to learn about the terrorist bombing in Kabul that killed at least 90 people and wounded 400 more.  This horrific attack took place in a crowded area of the city at the height of the morning rush hour, while commuters were going to work, women were shopping, and children were going to school.  My heart goes out to all of the victims and their families as they struggle to recover from this terrible act of violence.

“This ruthless attack is another example of the cowardice and cruelty of terrorists who target innocent civilians in an effort to make people afraid to go about their daily lives. Such brutal acts of violence are unacceptable and must be condemned in the harshest possible terms wherever and whenever they occur.

“America stands in solidarity with the people of Afghanistan, and we will keep them in our thoughts and prayers.”
