25 July 2016

On 23 July, Senior United Nations officials as well as the UN Security Council strongly condemned an attack on a peaceful demonstration in the Afghan capital.

Reiterating that international humanitarian and international human rights laws underscore the protection of civilians, Mr. Yamamoto stressed that the perpetrators of the attack must be held accountable.

“This attack is particularly heinous because it targeted civilians as they exercised their rights to freedom of assembly and freedom of expression." Mr. Yamamoto said, adding: It is an attempt to spread terror amongst civilians and stifle the freedoms that Afghans have sacrificed so much to obtain.”

According to the mass media, at least 80 people were killed and more than 230 others were injured.
