KABUL (PAN): The United States and NATO on Thursday strongly condemned an insurgent attack on an office of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in eastern Nangarhar province.

Wednesday’s suicide attack in Jalalabad killed one ICRC staff member and an Afghan guard. And six of the assailants were killed while expatriate was slightly wounded. All other staff members escaped unhurt.

“Once again, we are reminded these insurgents have a total disregard for human life. Our thoughts are with the victims of the attack and their families,” the US embassy in Kabul said.
