The US has condemned the terror attack on a police training centre in Quetta in which over 60 cadets have been killed, saying it stands with the people and government of Pakistan and would continue to work with its partners to combat the threat of terrorism. “We extend our condolences to the victims and their families, including the police cadets who are embarking on careers of public service,” State Department Spokesman John Kirby said.

Watch what else is making news:

“We stand with the people of Pakistan and government of Pakistan at this difficult hour, and we will continue to work with our partners in Pakistan and across the region to combat the threat of terrorism,” he said.

The overnight attack by three terrorists on the Police Training College on Saryab Road in the Balochistan provincial capital Quetta has left over 60 cadets besides three militants dead, with 118 injured, making it one of the deadliest strikes in the country this year.
