New York, Oct 1 2006 10:00PM
The senior United Nations envoy to Afghanistan has condemned a suicide attack outside the Interior Ministry in Kabul city that reportedly resulted in more than a dozen deaths and wounded over 50 other people.
"I am shocked and appalled," Tom Koenigs, Secretary-General Kofi Annan's Special Representative, said in a statement released on Saturday following the blast.
"It is particularly upsetting that so many lives have been lost in such a callous attack against innocent Afghans who were simply going to work," he said.
Declaring that the Afghan people "have suffered enough," he decried those who use violence "in a civilian arena with such wanton disregard for so many innocent lives."
