US denounces 'terrorist attack' in Philippines

The United States Department of State shared in a statement that it "condemns in the strongest terms the horrific terrorist attack" that took place while a Catholic service was being held at Mindanao State University in Marawi, the Philippines.

"We mourn those killed in the attack, and our thoughts are with the injured. The United States is in close contact with our Philippine partners and stands with the people of the Philippines in rejecting this act of violence," it was written in the statement.

The attack, which left at least four dead and 50 injured, was later claimed by the Islamic State.
