WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is expressing condolences to families on the 20th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, saying America will never forget those who lost their lives.

In a statement Sunday, Obama paid tribute to the 168 people who died in the April 19, 1995, attack. He says while the passage of time will never extinguish the pain of loss, the resilience of the American people and the “bonds that unite us” remain strong.

He says the many first responders who risked their lives to save others on that day, as well as the law enforcement officers who helped bring the perpetrators to justice, provide an example of “America at its best.”

The bombing was the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil until the Sept. 11 attacks six years later.
