Obama Condemns Pakistan Attack

After a devastating Taliban attack killed at least 43 refugees in northwest Pakistan on Saturday, President Obama condemned the bombing from his vacation post in Hawaii, calling it "outrageous." Believed to be carried out by Pakistan's first female suicide bomber, the attack ripped through a crowd waiting to receive emergency food rations from a U.N. agency in Pakistan. "Killing innocent civilians outside a World Food Program distribution point is an affront to the people of Pakistan, and to all humanity," Obama said. "The United States stands with the people of Pakistan in this difficult time, and will strongly support Pakistan's efforts to ensure greater peace, security and justice for its people."
