Afghanistan - Attack on ICRC staff members (February 8, 2017)

France is outraged by the murder on February 8 of six staff members of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Afghanistan.

These deliberate attacks on humanitarian workers constitute unacceptable violations of international law and humanitarian principles.

We offer our condolences to the victims’ families and our solidarity to the ICRC staff, who work with courage and dedication to meet the needs of the people of Afghanistan.
