Accident Involving U.S. Embassy Vehicle

The U.S. embassy community extends its deepest condolences to the families of the two children who died in a tragic accident involving an official embassy vehicle on 14 August, 2016.  We know the loss of any family member is hard, but it is especially difficult to lose a child.  Ambassador Barks-Ruggles personally visited the families of the victims to express her heartfelt sympathies for the loss of their children.  She also visited another child who was injured in the accident and wished him a speedy and full recovery from the injuries he sustained.  We continue to express our profound condolences to those grieving and we continue to keep these families in our thoughts.
