Statementby the Secretary-General On the attack at the World Food Programme (WFP) office in Pakistan
I condemn in the strongest terms the attack at the Office of the WFP in Islamabad. This is a terrible tragedy for the UN and for the whole humanitarian community in Pakistan. This is a heinous crime committed against those who have been working tirelessly to assist the poor and the vulnerable on the frontlines of hunger and other human suffering in Pakistan. My deepest condolences go to the colleagues fallen in the line of duty for noble causes and their families and friends.
