Terrorist attack in Lahore: Communique issued by the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs
(Paris, 3 March, 2009)
“France utterly condemns the attack against the Sri Lankan
cricket team on their way to play in Lahore, which killed eight police officers
and injured seven players. This despicable act is an intolerable and cruel
negation of the values of peace and brotherhood embodied by sport.
France extends her condolences to the victims’ families and
loved-ones and the Pakistani and Sri Lankan governments and assures them of her
support in their fight against terrorism.
She expresses her solidarity to the Pakistani and Sri Lankan
authorities and peoples at this testing time.”
