US offers aid to probe Karachi bus attack

WASHINGTON: The United States Thursday offered to help Pakistan investigate the deadly Karachi bus attack which left at least 46 Ismailis dead.

“We will support efforts to bring all those responsible to justice and stand ready to provide assistance to the investigation of this tragic attack,” US Secretary of State John Kerry said.

Kerry condemned what he called a “heinous attack,” adding the “American people stand in solidarity with the people of Pakistan.”

“Make no mistake: There is more strength by far in the respect and solidarity that we feel towards one another than there could ever be in any terrorist attack,” he added in a statement.

Kerry offered his condolences to the victims and their families as well as “the Aga Khan, who has led the Ismaili community in investing in so many important development and education projects not only in Pakistan, but around the world.”
