Washington: The US has condemned the suicide bomber attack on a mosque in northern Afghanistan that killed at least 46 people, saying it is an “enormous tragedy” and people of that country deserve better. “Obviously, any loss is an enormous tragedy, and our heart goes out to the families who lost loved ones,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters at her daily news conference on Friday.

“We, of course, will continue to work in partnership with leaders in the region to work to get partners who stood by our side out of Afghanistan, who want to depart. That’s something that there’s ongoing work on, as we speak,” Psaki said.
