US slams strike at police training centre
The US has condemned the terror attack on a police training centre in Quetta, in which 60 cadets were killed, saying it stands with the people and the government of Pakistan and would continue to work with its partners to combat terrorism. “We extend our condolences to the victims and their families, including the police cadets who are embarking on careers of public service,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said.
“We stand with the people of Pakistan and the government of Pakistan at this difficult hour, and we will continue to work with our partners in Pakistan and across the region to combat the threat of terrorism,” he said. The overnight attack is one of the deadliest strikes in the country this year.
