WASHINGTON -- President Bush called Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Wednesday to deplore a suicide bombing that killed dozens of children and lawmakers gathered at a sugar factory in Baghlan province north of Kabul.
Bush expressed his sympathies and decried the bombers as "cold-blooded killers," White House press secretary Dana Perino said.
"The president said the murderous act reminds all of us about the brutality of the enemy we are facing, that their hearts are filled with evil and they only see with hate," Perino said. "The president said that America cares deeply about the Afghan people and he urged President Karzai to stay strong."
