WASHINGTON, August 26, 2011/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- Attack on the United Nations in Nigeria


Press Statement

Hillary Rodham Clinton

Secretary of State

Washington, DC

August 26, 2011


The United States strongly condemns today's terrorist attack on United Nations offices in Abuja, Nigeria. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of those who were killed and injured.


There is no justification for this violence. These individuals were working to promote peace, expand opportunity and build a safer and more prosperous nation. The United Nations has been working side by side with Nigeria for more than five decades and the United States strongly supports its efforts. Vicious terrorist attacks such as these only strengthen our resolve and commitment to the work of the United Nations and the people of Nigeria.
