“From an ISAF point of view, this is a very, very tragic incident,” spokesman Brig.-Gen. Josef Blotz said Sunday at a briefing in Kabul.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton added her voice, condemning what she called a “despicable act of wanton violence” in a statement released Sunday.
The workers — six Americans, a German, a Briton and two Afghans — were shot to death in a remote region of northeastern Afghanistan. Their bullet-riddled bodies were found Friday.
Most of them were medical workers from the aid group International Assistance Mission. They provided eye care to Afghans.
