The United States condemns in the strongest terms today's terrorist attack against the innocent men and women of Garissa University College in eastern Kenya.

We extend our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the innocent victims who were killed in the attack. We also direct our thoughts to the many who sustained injuries,” said U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in a statement.

U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Robert F. Godec added, "We also offer our profound appreciation and gratitude to the members of the Kenyan security services who are risking their lives to end this cowardly attack."

The United States is providing assistance to the Kenyan Government, and will continue to partner with them and others in the region to take on the terrorist group al-Shabaab. The White House Press Secretary said, "The United States stands with the people of Kenya, who will not be intimidated by such cowardly attacks."

The attack once again reinforces the need for all countries and communities to unite in the effort to combat violent extremism.
