U.S. GOVERNMENT CONDEMNS CYCLE OF ESCALATING VIOLENCE

Colombo, November 29, 2007: The Government of the United States strongly condemns the deadly attacks on civilians that occurred in a shopping mall and a government office on November 28 in Colombo and on a bus carrying schoolchildren on November 27 near Kilinochochi.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to the victims and their families. Incidents such as these will lead to further loss of life, destruction, and suffering for the people of Sri Lanka.
