Statement by UNICEF on Afghanistan bomb attack

New York, 12 November 2007 - UNICEF strongly condemns the deadly bomb attack in northern Afghanistan on 6 November, which claimed the lives of 59 children and five teachers, and injured many more.

Actions that cause the deaths of children and innocent bystanders are never acceptable.

UNICEF extends its deepest sympathy to all the injured and its condolences to the families of the victims and to the people and the Government of Afghanistan.
