House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi extended condolences to the families of two Al Qaida hostages killed in a January strike at her weekly news conference Thursday, calling the deaths “heartbreaking.”

“It’s a tragic, terrible, terrible day,” Pelosi said. “There’s no way to say anything less than our thoughts and prayers are with the families, their sacrifice is a big one, the idealism of their family members will always be remembered and that will be part of their legacy, and part of their legacy is for us to do better.”
