Outrage grows over slaughter of aid workers

Posted by defensebaseactcomp on August 8, 2010

The international community is widely condemning the recent attack by militants that left 10 aid workers dead in Afghanistan.

NATO’S International Security Force condemned the slaughter, calling it a “sad and tragic” attack.

“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.
