Secretary Clinton on Attacks Against Iraqi Shia Pilgrims, February 5, 2010

(Says United States condemns series of attacks against religious pilgrimage)

STATEMENT BY SECRETARY CLINTON

Attacks on Iraqi Shia Pilgrims

The United States condemns the series of bombing attacks against Shia pilgrims in Iraq over the past week. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. Attacking men, women and children engaged in religious pilgrimage is reprehensible and exposes the cynical immorality of the terrorists who seek to replace Iraqs hard-won progress with violence and intimidation. They will not succeed in breaking the will of the Iraqi people. Iraqis are committed to realizing the promise of their democracy. There is no better rebuke to those who traffic in terror.
