AI Appalled At Devastating Attacks

USA: Amnesty International Appalled At Devastating Attacks Against Civilians

* News Release Issued by the International Secretariat of Amnesty International *

12 September 2001

Amnesty International is outraged at the attacks carried out in the United States, involving the hijacking of civilian aircraft and resulting in thousands of men, women and children being killed, maimed or injured.

"We condemn these attacks in the strongest terms. Whether they have been carried out by a state or an armed political group, these attacks amount to the gravest abuses of fundamental human rights and basic principles of humanity," Amnesty International said.

Amnesty International calls for those responsible for these attacks to be brought to justice, in full accordance with international human rights and humanitarian law.
