Terrorist attack an affront on people of Pakistan: Obama

"I strongly condemn the outrageous terrorist attack in Khar in Pakistan. Killing innocent civilians outside a World Food Program distribution point is an affront to the people of Pakistan, and to all humanity," Obama said in a statement.

"The United States stands with the people of Pakistan in this difficult time, and will strongly support Pakistan’s efforts to ensure greater peace, security and justice for its people," Obama said.

More than 40 people were killed and over 100 injured when a suicide bomber believed to be a woman attacked a checkpoint in the northwestern tribal area yesterday.
