KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): The International Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon) strongly condemned on Wednesday a bomb attack that killed Logar governor and wounded several people in a mosqueinfo-icon while celebrating Eidul Adha.

A statement attributed to ISAF top commander, US General Joseph Dunford, said numerous Afghan civilians were injured or killed when a bomb exploded as Governor Jamal began to address the Eid celebrants.

"I express my deepest sympathies to the families of those wounded and killed in yesterday's cruel and senseless attack," Dunford said.

"This indiscriminant violence, on a day reserved for national peace and celebration, reflects a complete disregard for the sanctity of life.”
