The United States condemns in the strongest terms the horrific terrorist attack that occurred today during a Catholic service 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.
