Washington, DC - The United States condemns today’s attack on the Police Academy of Sana’a and the senseless murder and injury of Yemeni citizens, many of whom sought to undertake public service and protect the Yemeni people. We express our sincere condolences to the victims and their families.

We honor the Yemeni men and women who work each day, often at great personal risk, to build a better, more peaceful future for themselves, their families, and all Yemenis. We continue to stand with the Government of Yemen and the Yemeni people to counter the shared threat posed by terrorists.
