09:10, September 14, 2011

WASHINGTON, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday that the attacks on U.S. embassy in Kabul would not intimidate her country.

"They will not be intimidated by this kind of cowardly attack," Clinton said at the State Department, referring to the civilians and U.S. diplomats who are working in Afghanistan.

"They work hard every day along with their Afghan colleagues to help children go to school, to help save mothers' lives at childbirth, to build roads, to assist farmers," she said.

Clinton vowed that the U.S. would take all necessary steps to ensure the safety of Americans and to make sure that the attackers are "dealt with."

A number of armed insurgents on Tuesday attacked different parts of Afghan capital Kabul, including U.S. embassy and the NATO headquarters.

Reports said a number of civilians were injured in the attacks, and five suicide bombers were killed.
