U.S. Condemns Terrorist Attack in Mali


Press Statement
John Kerry
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
November 20, 2015


The United States strongly condemns the terrorist attack today in Mali. We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased and injured during this senseless assault on innocent people at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bamako.

We thank the first responders, especially Malian Forces and U.N., French, and U.S. security personnel, including U.S. Diplomatic Security, who assisted with evacuating hostages and transporting them to safe locations.

Our embassy in Bamako is making every effort to account for American citizens in the city, and in the days ahead we stand ready to provide support the Malian government in the investigation. All those responsible for these recurring terrorist attacks must be held accountable.

Mali is an important regional partner to the United States, and we stand with the Malian people. These terrorist attacks will only deepen our shared resolve to fight terrorism.
