The United States on Monday condemned the deadly suicide bombing attack at the UN World Food Program's office in Pakistan, saying the attack exposes "the true nature of the terrorist agenda."

"Senseless acts of violence against people who help feed the poor and hungry are an attack on civilian itself. Such cruel acts expose the true nature of the terrorist agenda," said U.S. State Department spokesman Ian Kelly.

At least five people were killed and several others injured in the suicide attack that hit World Food Program's office in Islamabad on Monday. The UN agency has been providing vital food assistance to some 10 million Pakistani people.

"We extend our deepest sympathy to the injured and our condolences to the families and friends of those who lost their lives in the bombing," said Kelly.
