The United States has strongly condemned the horrific and indiscriminate Boko Haram suicide attack on the Grand Marche in the Chadian capital of N’Djamena on Saturday.
It has equally condemned the attacks in Cameroon, Niger, and Nigeria over the past two days.
The condemnation was contained in a statement by the U.S. Department of State spokesperson, Washington, D.C., John Kirby
"Boko Haram’s targeting of men, women, and children highlights that the group’s brutality and barbarism know no bounds, and we remain committed to working closely with the region to root out the threat posed by the group.
"We extend our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the soldiers, government officials, and civilians killed; we hope those who were injured will recover quickly.
"The United States praises the security forces of Cameroon, Chad, Niger, and Nigeria for their timely responses to these callous and cowardly attacks on innocent civilians.“
