Switzerland condemns the attack in Mahabad

Bern, Press release, 23.09.2010

The Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) condemns the bomb attack carried out during a military parade in the Iranian city of Mahabad in the strongest of terms.

A bomb attack that was perpetrated during a military parade on Wednesday in north-western Iran claimed the lives of at least 10 persons, mainly women and children. These murderous terrorist attacks can in no way be justified. Such cruelty towards innocent people is not to be tolerated. The FDFA extends his deepest condolences to the family members and friends of the victims.
