uganda bombingaGENEVA, July 13, 2010 — The United States strongly condemns the attacks in Kampala targeting innocent spectators of the World Cup. Our condolences and prayers go out to the victims of this crime as well as their family and friends.

These attacks — which came at the very moment Africa was shining on the world stage and when people around the globe had come together to share a moment of global unity and celebrate human aspiration and achievement — demonstrate once again the threat radicalization and terrorism pose to us all.

We stand with the people and government of Uganda, all Africans, and all people everywhere who wish to live in peace and security.
