AECR President condemns sickening Bastille Day attack in France

15 July 2016

Jan Zahradil MEP, President of the AECR, strongly condemned last night’s horrific terrorist attack in Nice.

On behalf of the AECR, I condemn in the strongest terms last night’s sickening terrorist attack in Southern France. My deepest sympathies are with the victims and loved ones of those affected by this terrible act. With one voice, the AECR and all who love freedom and peace stand in solidarity with the people of France in their fight against terrorism.

A gunman at the wheel of a heavy truck ploughed into crowds celebrating Bastille Day, murdering at least 84 people and injuring many more.

Bastille Day is the French National Day and commemorates the storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789.
