Pompeo Confirms US Civilian Killed in Afghanistan

A U.S. civilian was killed Sunday in an attack on a United Nations vehicle in Kabul, Afghanistan, the US State Department said.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday identified the aid worker as Anil Raj, a U.S. citizen from San Francisco.

Five other aid workers were wounded in the attack in the Afghan capital.

Pompeo told reporters that attacks targeting U.N. personnel helping the Afghan people are “unconscionable.”

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing, but both Taliban and the IS-K group are active in the capital and have repeatedly claimed previous attacks.
