UN Security Council condemns terrorist attack on Sikh Gurudwara in Kabul

AIR
The United Nations Security Council has condemned the heinous and cowardly terrorist attack on a Sikh Gurudwara in Kabul that killed 25 people, underlining the need to hold the perpetrators and sponsors of these reprehensible acts accountable and bring them to justice.

Twenty five worshippers were killed and eight others injured when a heavily armed suicide bomber stormed a prominent Gurudwara on Wednesday in the heart of Afghanistan's capital of Kabul, in one of the deadliest attacks on the minority Sikh community in the strife-torn country. The Islamic State (IS) terror group, which has targeted Sikhs before in Afghanistan, claimed responsibility for the attack.

Expressing their deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims and to the government of Afghanistan, the Council members reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security. 

The council reaffirmed the need for all states to combat by all means, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and other obligations under international laws, including international human rights law, international refugee law and international humanitarian law, threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts.
