Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel Statement on Pakistan School Terrorist Attack

“On behalf of all the men and women of the U.S. Defense Department, I extend our deepest condolences to the people of Pakistan following today’s ruthless attack on the army public school in Peshawar. This heartless slaughter of over 100 innocent students and teachers was an act of pure cowardice. The United States remains committed to supporting Pakistan in its efforts to combat extremism and ensure stability in the region. As we stand firm with the Pakistani people and military in their fight against terrorists, we also honor their sacrifices, and join the victims’ families and loved ones in their mourning.”
