United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today condemned two separate terrorist attacks which took place in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan, reportedly targeting a Christian neighbourhood and a district court, according to his spokesperson.
“He stresses the need to ensure accountability and to bring to justice the perpetrators of these terrorist attacks,” the spokesperson added in a statement.
According to media reports, earlier today, four suicide bombers targeted a Christian neighbourhood near the province’s capital, Peshawar, killing one person before being shot dead, while another suicide bomber attacked a court in the city of Mardan, killing at least 12 people and injuring more than 50.
“The Secretary-General is saddened by the loss of life,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said. “He extends his heartfelt condolences to the victims and their families, and wishes a speedy recovery to the injured. He expresses his solidarity with the people and Government of Pakistan.”
