In the morning of 28 December, a terrorist attack hit a peaceful gathering at a cultural centre in Kabul, Afghanistan. It has left over 40 persons killed and injured more than 80 others, amongst them women and children.
“With journalists amongst the casualties, this act of violence is clearly also an attack against freedom of expression and democracy in Afghanistan”, – says the statement of the EU Action Service spokesperson.
“The European Union expresses its deepest condolences to the families of those who were killed in these attacks and wishes a speedy recovery to the many who were wounded.”
“The European Union will continue to stand by the Afghan authorities and people in the fight against terrorism and to support their efforts to build a peaceful and prosperous future for all Afghan citizens.”
