Blasts in Karachi

The United States condemns the terrorist attacks in Karachi during a peaceful political rally for former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. There is no political cause that can justify the murder of innocent people. Those responsible seek only to foster fear and limit freedom. We note that President Musharraf and the Government of Pakistan have condemned the attack as well. The United States stands with the people of Pakistan to eliminate the threat of terrorism, and to build an open, democratic, and peaceful society.
