FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The United States condemns in the strongest terms the terrorist attack today in Najaf that targeted a UN convoy, which included UN Special Representative Ad Melkert. The United States will continue to support the tireless work that the men and women of the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq undertake each day to help the Iraqi people build a sovereign, democratic and stable Iraq. We extend our sincere condolences to the Government of Iraq for the death and injuries suffered by Iraqi security forces as a result of the bombing.
