BAGHDAD, Iraq (Jan. 23, 2008) – The Multi-National Force - Iraq joins with the people and Government of Iraq to express condolences to the victims and families of those who perished or were injured in the explosion today in Mosul.

We share the outrage of the Iraqi people and we denounce the brutal enemy responsible for this attack and his wanton disregard of innocent human life. This indiscriminate violence, meant to reverse progress and turn Iraqis against one another, again shows the nature of this barbaric enemy.

Multi-National Division-North is working closely with authorities to ensure they have sufficient medical supplies and humanitarian assistance for the citizens of Mosul. We stand ready to provide additional support as requested and will continue to work for a peaceful, stable and prosperous Iraq.
