US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday that the assassination of Mohammed Chatah was a loss for the people of Lebanon, the cause of peace in the region, and the government of the United States.

"His tragic end reminds all of us just why his vision remains so imperative," Kerry said, calling the attack "heinous and cowardly."

Kerry personally worked with the former minister during his tenure in the US Senate.

"These acts only reinforce the strength and resolve of our commitment to support legitimate, unifying security forces in Lebanon, such as the Lebanese Armed Forces," he added.
