Press Release

(Washington DC) Today, Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-Calif.), Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and Ranking Member of the Africa Subcommittee released the following statement in reaction to the ongoing hostage crisis in Nairobi, Kenya:

"I am deeply troubled by the ongoing terrorist attacks and hostage crisis taking place in Nairobi.  News reports of the casualties remind us that we as members of the international community must do more to push back against those who care so little for the loss of life, particularly the lives of innocents.  These attacks are deplorable and the perpetrators must be brought to justice and held accountable for these crimes."
