WASHINGTON:- The United States has strongly condemned Tuesday’s suicide blast outside the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) office in Mardan that killed at least 26 people, and extended its condolences to the families of the victims. “The United States remains committed to the people of Pakistan and to the Pakistani government’s efforts to fight terrorism,” Mark Toner, the State Department Deputy Spokesman, told reporters at the daily press briefing. “Such blatant disregard for human life is unacceptable and contrary to the aspirations of the Pakistani people for a secure and stable and prosperous nation,” Toner said.–SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT
