us call lahore blasts

WASHINGTON: The US condemned as “cowardly” an apparent suicide attack on a crowded park in Lahore on Sunday, vowing to work with Pakistan to defeat those sowing terror in the country.

“The United States condemns in the strongest terms today’s appalling terrorist attack in Lahore, Pakistan,” National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said in a White House statement.

“This cowardly act in what has long been a scenic and placid park has killed dozens of innocent civilians and left scores injured.”

“We will continue to work with our partners in Pakistan and across the region, as together we will be unyielding in our efforts to root out the scourge of terrorism,” Mr Price added.
