Kabul, June 5th, 2017
Roshan can now confirm we have lost 12 Roshan staff members and 19 employees from our longstanding partner companies as a result of Wednesday’s tragic explosion. Our condolences go out to their families and friends and we will work to honor their memory. Our prayers and sympathies also go out to our neighboring businesses who have suffered as a result of the collateral damage.
Additionally, more than 50 Roshan staff members have been injured and 4 are currently hospitalized with serious injuries. Our priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our staff members and their families, and providing support and care to all those affected by this tragedy. We thank all of our friends and partners for their ongoing support, and our customers for their continued loyalty as we work to resume our business operations.
We will continue to provide additional information as it becomes available.
