New York attack: US offered full cooperation

New York attack: US offered full cooperation

Sep 20, 2016 - 10:45

WASHINGTON (Pajhwok): Ambassador Hamdullah Mohib on Monday condemned the alleged violence committed by Afghan American Ahmad Khan Rahami in New York and New Jersey.

“The government of Afghanistaninfo-icon condemns in the strongest terms the violence allegedly committed by a US citizen of Afghan descent,” Mohib said in a statement.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their loved ones. We stand ready to help with this matter if US authorities request our cooperation,” he added.

Afghanistan and its people desired peace over all else, and stood in solidarity with Americans against all forms of hatred and violence, Mohib said.

Rahami, 28, was arrested in New Jersey following an exchange of fire. He has been charged with five counts of attempted murder of a law-enforcement officer.

At an election rally in Florida, Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, called for speedy trial of Rahami. “We must have speedy, but fair trials, and we must deliver a just and very harsh punishment to these people.”

He praised police for arresting the individual. “Today, we have caught this evil thug who planted the bombs. Thank you, law enforcement. Thank you, police. Great,” he said.

This is for the second time this year that an Afghan American has been accused of involvement in an terrorist activity. Previously, an Afghan attacked a gay bar in Florida.
