The United States condemns the attack in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, last night that resulted in two deaths and injuries to others.  Our condolences go out to the families of the slain soldiers.  We call on all parties in Northern Ireland to unequivocally reject such senseless acts of violence, whose intention is to destroy the peace that so many in Northern Ireland have worked so hard to achieve.
